I note that your own SOS there in Iowa was a civics teacher and football
coach at the local High School around the time you were making a name for
yourself writing authoritative pieces on voting technology.

Most "officials" in the system are absolutely unprepared and unqualified to
deal with this new 'lectronic vote technology. We should point out the need
to get appropriately trained people into the various personnel slots -- from
SOS and state election chiefs down to county clerks and pollworkers.
