There must be a stop to corporate involvement in the elections process. Reports like those coming from Delaware Co, Indiana, where the vendor sells, maintains, programs, and tests the equipment and then does the tabulation, are all too prevalent. An attorney for the company has even gone so far as to suggest that county officials and candidates sign a document to release the company from any fault caused by their work. Simply unbelievable! / Next week the court will be brought further into the Sarasota Co., Florida, issue. Expect to see challenges filed by the Dems. for their candidate, Jennings, and also VoterAction, CommonCause, ACLU Florida, EFF, and others for the voters. VoterAction needs help with the work they are doing in Florida right now. Please visit them at www.voteraction.org/donate.html and consider helping them to help our democracy....
