In New Hampshire two Diebold OS machines were confiscated by the police due to irregularities in the total vote count. In Maryland today the Gov. asked the state legislature for $21.8M to replace the states DREs but the Senate immediately voted to use it for a poll book to keep voters from voting twice....
