Elections in the Weeds...

Today, amongst the reports of failures in elections across the country, there was good news from Wisconsin where their Assembly voted nearly unanimously for a vvpat. One newspaper in New Jersey reported that Sequoia Voting still had to verify the election before it could be certified. Have they really turned over their elections administration to a private company? And, election poll printouts have reportedly been found in the weeds outside a gas station in Lucas Co., OH. Is this a sign of a problem? Something illegal? Just a human error?...
