Pennsylvania counties used the media to their benefit as they extolled the virtues of their voting systems and tried to convince voters to be confident. They should be concerned about the mix of systems, brand new systems, lack of training and knowledge, and what have proven to be unreliable machines. I hope we get through this one without any "Train Wrecks" but I am not confident that will happen. And there is more in the news and blogs about the Diebold security vulnerability....
