Need More Links!

The link to electoral-vote.com was dropped for almost two days. I emailed
the "votemaster" on election day to ask to have it restored. Now he has one
simple sentence there again. It just says "The Open voting consortium is a
group addressing the subject of verifiable voting."

We received 1,000 visitors in the last few hours and 4 member subscriptions
plus $145. So, the subscribers/visitors ratio remains incredibly high --
one per 250 for the last 4 hours.

I'm getting a lot of emails with verbiage like this:

"I am very angry that this election was so close and
could easily have been thrown with Diebold, or other,
machines. I DON'T want to let this die, I think exit
polls should be looked at carefully to determine if
the results match, as 'electoral-vote.com' suggests
they don't, especially in Ohio."

While we're not going to overturn the result, we should be able to tap into
this sense of outrage and frustration. It happens that these people are
probably Democrats, but if Bush had lost by such a close margin, Republicans
would probably be angry.
