8. New York has sold out big time!
Edited on Fri Jun-26-09 10:21 PM by Bill Bored
The guinea pig tally is up to 1.4 million registered voters and the State Board of Elections has refused to require full hand counts, or even statistical audits. They have suggested that the Bush v. Gore approach of letting the courts decide our elections will be just fine. Candidates should just tell it to the judge.

Meanwhile, NY Election Law prohibits full recounts after election night. (On election night, you can have a recount at your precinct, but with the scanners there will be no way to know if it's required.)

Activists are divided between the pissed off (NYVV and the League of Women Voters), and the VERY PISSED OFF (everyone else)! (Well, everyone but the vendors I guess.)

We want our election laws enforced and to make sure ALL votes are counted as cast, even if the scanners aren't "certified." Instead, we're becoming the Florida of the North! :argh:
