DON'T FORGET TO [have a ] VOTE [that counts]!

from CNET today, coverage of a problem most Republicans would like us all to forget about.

The Brennan Center for Justice at New York University recently released a report analyzing the security vulnerabilities of three of the most commonly used electronic voting systems. The results are sobering.

All three voting systems were found to contain significant security and reliability vulnerabilities. The Brennan report also concluded these vulnerabilities pose threats to the integrity of national, state and local elections.

We all have a lot of local issues and world grief on our plates just now. And it will get worse as November approaches. Just remember that the people who are in denial about making the world blow up in our faces are the same ones who take Diebold's money. Don't let there be any hint of suspicion about the honesty of our next vote or that grief will just stay there on your plate and keep piling on.
