Popular Progressive: The Paper (Ballot) Chase

Excerpted from this post at Popular Progressive

A citizen group has urged Governor Culver to provide funding for paper
ballot equipment in time for the November 2008 elections. The Governor
has said that the state should consider a vote by mail system before
funding new voting equipment, and there is discussion of a small vote
by mail pilot project in 2008. This would leave many counties using
touch screen voting machines in 2008. "A vote by mail pilot should not
distract the state from the urgent need to replace touch screen
machines in time for the Presidential election," said Sean Flaherty,
co-chair of Iowans for Voting Integrity.
