Democratic Underground's: Electronic Voting Forum

Ronnie Dugger's 1988 article from the NY Times ANNALS OF DEMOCRACY COUNTING VOTES. The text link no longer works and this site looks either neglected or abandoned. You need to scroll down a bit to get to the article. I'm looking for another copy online (or will write Dugger) in case this disappears.

Link Crusaders Anti-Bush links many links on voting issues here — minimal commentary.

From an Addison Weseley text on voting fraud (This is from the Neuman site that has the Annuals of Democracy above—link together?)

People for Internet Responsibility — includes a fact squad. Appears founded by the Neumans, see above). — check

Declared Strategy Voting - bibliographical references, link to DSV source code [academic] : Lorrie Cranor   •  her eVoting page and • hotlist good source—check "sidedness"

Features and actions will be here.

This is a page I've been working on for myself in order to educate myself about black box voting issues. Having read Greg Palast's chapter on the Florida 2000 election machinations in his The Best Democracy Money Can Buy and realizing the high potential for fraud (not to mention just simple failure of these systems), I am hoping to give this information a home and share it with others who may also be in the process of keeping themselves informed.

Time to check things out.
