11. Apparently this decision has ruffled a few feathers.
Edited on Mon Jul-12-10 09:34 PM by Bill Bored
It's an inconvenient truth that HAVA does NOT ban lever voting machines in federal elections.

There's now an anonymous campaign underway (probably by the State Board of Elections) to give New Yorkers the impression that counties like Nassau, who are opposed to computerized vote counting, will "comply" by switching to ballot scanners this year.

Of course the counties will do what they have to do, but the jury is still out on these lawsuits, and anything can happen.

Which of Gandhi's stages are we in now: First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win?

I'd say somewhere between fighting and winning. They sure ain't ignoring or laughing at us!
