Joseph,

Would you mind telling me how you obtained those links so quickly? Did
you use a method that would be easy for me to learn/use that might help me
gather data more quickly. (I'm inputing counties, type of voting machines
into a spreadsheet now - perhaps a slow way, and was planning to go back
and click on each page one at a time to get the vendor name, but perhaps
all I have to do is use google and specify the right constraints, etc.)

Or alternatively, could you grab the name of the county, the type of
voting machine (category used by Verified Voting), and the vendor name for
NJ, Arkansas, Florida, Ohio, Iowa?

Perhaps if you taught me your methods, I could use them when I begin to
start grabbing all the election results by county (teach a man to fish
....).

I could things out of MS word by using search and replaces. I have a unix
shell account, although I haven't used it in ages.

Thanks.

Kathy
