Bleeding Heartland: Previewing the Iowa secretary of state race
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
Iowa Secretary of State Michael Mauro doesn't make the news often, but he has done very well in his first term. I particularly appreciate his support for requiring paper ballots to be used in all Iowa counties. We had several statehouse races decided by fewer than 100 votes in 2008. Imagine what an uproar we'd have seen if touchscreen voting machines had been used in those races.
