Re: A little article for those who feel their vote doesn't matter.

Hello Fred:
 
Yes, I'm hoping we could at least add it to the FAQ along with your experience in the State of Washington. It probably would be nice to update that portion. While OVC does not apparently have voter participation as a primary mission ("If you show up, we want you to get counted," would be more to the point,) it is an open issue. Hopefully we're viewed as a resource by other groups and perhaps they can harvest this information.
 
For the copyright aware, I have a question: While the media doesn't seem to care if we link to their coverage, they have problems when we copy the story wholesale and reproduce it in, say, our wiki. Are there news sources that are uncopywritten? Is there some sort of exemption for not for profit groups or academic use? The reason I ask, is that fairly soon after publishing, say a week, the links to the stories either don't work, or direct you to a membership page which is at best a hassle and at worst asks for money prior to viewing the article.
 
Thanks, Ed Kennedy

Nice point. In the Washington governor's race we missed a hand recount
by 11 votes.
