'Daily Voting News' For June 7, 2006
Compiled by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org and VoteTrustUSA.Org
Yesterday we had primary elections in eight states, yet all problems have not been settled in states that had primaries even a month ago. There are still residual problems being reported in Arkansas, Pennsylvania, and Indiana. How are these being addressed by the EAC? They are being ignored as the state's problems. /Underfunded candidates who did no campaigning won in the first count of absentee ballots in one Iowa county on ES Optical-scan machines. The county is hand counting those ballots./There were many reports of problems throughout the state of California yesterday. One can only guess that there were at least as many unreported problems./ Leflore Co., Mississippi had ballot programming problems even though a Diebold tech had worked on their machines for a month/...
