Junk the touch-screens

Posted By on Thu, Feb 7, 2008 at 5:07 AM

We mentioned Lisa Burks election day. She's the activist who's fought touch-screen voting machines but did lobby successfully for a paper verification trail for all voting machines.

Her touch-screen voting machine in Conway malfunctioned Tuesday and she raised sand. The Election Commission chairman agrees that it's likely that the paper audit function didn't work on all the votes cast on the machine. CORRECTION: Razorback correctly notes that I misread a sentence this morning and that the chairman was referring to the single machine, not all of them. His assurances that the vote was still cast doesn't reassure Burks or me, however. Without an audit, how could we possibly know?

They must go.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
