In Florida, Judge Richard Feder ruled in favor of Broward County’s Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes. In violation of her agreement, Snipes failed to post notices telling voters that a vote for one name on the ballot was actually a vote for Mardi Anne Levey. The judge decided that Snipes failure wasn’t intentional, so he didn’t hold her accountable.

The situation in Iran is demonstrating that the true measure of an election is its legitimacy – legitimacy of the results and legitimacy conferred to the government, both of which depend on the extent to which the results are believed by all parties....

From the deluge of coverage on Iran, we tried to select representative, information articles that weren't too repetitious. Many whose headlines don't explain why we chose them have annotations so you'll know why. The aftermath of the Iranian election exemplifies the way Twitter, blogs, and other social networking/media are transforming the way private citizens can monitor their elections....

Does a polling place have an accessible voting system (as required by federal law) just because it contains "accessible" equipment, or do you have to be able to get into the building to use it?

Nearly seven years ago, the federal government provided billions of dollars for states to use to --- among other things --- make voting in every polling place accessible to people with disabilities. States rushed to purchase now-discredited electronic voting machines that the vendors claimed allowed people with disabilities to vote privately and independently. States put the machines in every polling place, but what did they do to make the polling places physically accessible? Very little, according to a new report from the GAO. 73% of the nation's polling places remain physically inaccessible to many voters --- an improvement of 11% since 2000....

"Netherlands-based" Smartmatic, the winning bidder in the Philippines, says their automated poll equipment is tamper proof.

This from Harris County, Texas --- the third largest county in the US:

Johnson is the associate voter registrar at the Harris County Tax Assessor Collectors office, but according to state documents, that's just his day job. Johnson is also a paid director of a small company that provides voter data to Republican candidates for office. That company, Campaign Data Systems, billed at least $140,000 in 2008.

We still have Georgia on our mind. The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the NAACP lawsuit, filed in 2005, against Georgia's photo voter ID law (not to be confused with the recently passed Georgia law requiring proof of citizenship to register to vote, nor the Georgia database matching procedures recently struck down by the DoJ, nor the challenge currently before the Supreme Court to Section 5 of the National Voting Rights Act)....

Sequoia has agreed to turn over source code and design documents for its electronic voting machine system to the District of Columbia Board of Elections for examination. The Board hopes to discover what caused the software to add 1500 write-in votes to the totals in last year's September primary. One of Sequoia's original suggestions was that it was static discharge or human error. But the DC Board of Elections didn't buy it. They pursued, investigated, and finally decided to go to court. Sequoia immediately caved. Could it be because Sequoia doesn't own the intellectual property rights?...

In our featured article, the ES&S tabulation software added nearly 5,000 votes to the total as votes from the three M650 scanners were combined. Some people in India are suggesting that their election was rigged; with DREs, how will they find out if their software goofed, too?...

The DoJ's decision to strike down Georgia's voter verification process has sparked a lot of discussion. And by the way, the decision about Georgia's voter ID law has not been made yet.

Barbara Simons and Justin Moore wrote an excellent article about Internet voting and countered some of the misinformation in an earlier article written by the vendor who ran the Hawaii Neighborhood election.

In New York, some counties resist the 'pilot program' of using uncertified equipment in the elections this year; others decide to participate. Bo Lipari points out that it isn't a pilot program at all and recommends some steps the NY Board of Elections could take to turn it into one....
