Today we have an "Action Alert" for all voters to demand fair elections in the state of Florida. We also have another in support of Emery County Utah clerk Bruce Funk who has taken a stand against Diebold DREs. And there is a petition at VoteTrustUSA in support of HR-550. That petition has over 50,000 signatures and the number is growing quickly. The petition will be delivered to the House Rules Committee on Friday. In the bad news category we have more failed memory cards in Summit County, Ohio and now a report of ES&S not meeting dates for smart card delivery in Johnson County Indiana. That will force that county to use paper ballots (which may be a good thing)....
