As our “Featured” article reports California Secretary of State Debra Bowen has sent a letter to new EAC Chair Gineen Beach. The letter has three proposals that Secretary Bowen is convinced will improve the integrity of voting systems used in the country. As stated in the article we at VotersUnite have also worked on this issue. The three proposals are that vendors should be required to disclose vulnerabilities, flaws, problems, etc. Also, the EAC should create a uniform incident reporting program. And finally, the “Election Day Survey” the states are asked to complete should include data from election officials about how their voting systems performed during a general election. We applaud Secretary Bowen for taking a stand on this issue....
