Can anyone on the voting-project list make this event tonight [who would be willing to give a plug for OVC]? We should really show up for this.

Heard some disturbing stories about electronic voting machines and the companies that make them? A significant portion of the electorate will vote electronically using ATM-like voting machines in November. The viability of the systems is still in question - a number of incidents have eroded confidence that the systems can ensure every vote is counted fairly. Could this year's Presidential election have balloting snafus like those in Florida in 2000? Find out from the experts.
