Voting problems: another thing to worry about

Besides having to listen to politicians' rantings, we wonder now if we can even trust our voting systems, with all the problems going on: Florida, for example, where early voters are finding machines registering votes for their choice's opponent. And then, several states or counties, like Chicago, are wondering if their voting systems are controlled by Hugo Chavez, for goodness' sake.

To keep up with what's going on, two places to check: Black Box Voting, and Electionline, among many others. Business Week has more on the Smartmatic/Sequoia/Chavez story.

If you want to know what system you'll ve voting on, Electionline has compiled a list of what systems are used in each state, with links to lists by county or jurisdiction, where they vary: Voting Systems 2006.
Another useful compilation from Electionline: Statewide Voter Registration Database Status 2006.


  • No need to worry, Liz, the Democrats are SURE to win. I mean the polls can't possibly be wrong. Why, they are almost as accurate as the 2004 exit polls.
