22. Did I read ALL of HAVA ... No ...
But I did read a report on the legislation which said that it was requiring

the purchase of electronic voting machines --

Hand counted paper ballots are a certified voting system in my state, but
no one will use them.

We were lucky to get paper at all.

Obviously, our problems are also with officials in charge of elections --

I'm reminded of Theresa La Pore -- the "Democrat" who designed the butterfly

ballot in Florida. There were specific rules against butterfly ballot --

yet she got it thru to Democrats approving it--!!

Later it turned out they discovered she had attachments to Republicans, but

we haven't heard much about that--!! There were more than 3,000 of those votes

that went to Buchanan -- enough to defeat W in Florida.
