Daily Voting News for 2007 elections

I’ve got a backlog of election material to talk about so I’ll do a little bit of link-blogging to catch up.

John Gideon’s Daily Voting News (DVN) links to a plethora of post-election Tuesday articles from this year’s elections:

This is a typical post-election day DVN. Lot’s of reports of failures and problems. Part of the problem with today’s technical elections is that they are “high tech” and probably too “high.” Voters don’t understand it all and election workers don’t understand even when they are supposed to have been trained. Most Election officials clearly don’t understand what is happening so they blindly take the word of the vendors. The single county with the most problems last year seems to have repeated its poor record. Marion Co (Indianapolis) Indiana has a real problem with elections administration and the machines.

The DVN covers all sorts of election news but it is primarily focused on election integrity and voting machine issues.
