Allison Kilkenny: Unreported

State-by-State Election Update

Posted in voter disenfranchisement by allisonkilkenny on October 18, 2008

From John Gideon:

18 days until Election Day

Today was a day for court decisions. Finally a judge in New Jersey has released the Princeton University report on the state’s Sequoia Voting Machines. Earlier Sequoia had released their response to the report. After the recent failures of their voting systems in Palm Beach Co. Florida and Washington DC Sequoia must be very concerned about this report and what it contains. One item of note is that the inspection and resulting report was the result of an election problem that called into question the accuracy of the Sequoia Advantage voting system. The cause of that failure is discussed in the Princeton report but that section of the report is one of the only sections that Sequoia ignores.

Also this morning the Supreme Court sided with the voters of Ohio and freed the Secretary of State and county election officials from a ruling by a lower court that would have caused as many as 200,000 voters to lose their right to vote in this election.
