This is more than likely going to be a nail-bitingly close Presidential election, and that makes stories like this one all the more disturbing. From Salon.com:
Voting machine provider Hart Intercivic will be counting the votes in various counties in the crucial swing states of Ohio and Colorado and elsewhere throughout the country come Nov. 6 — even though it has extensive corporate ties to the Mitt Romney camp, and even though a study commissioned by the state of Ohio has labeled its voting system a “failure” when it comes to protecting the integrity of elections.
Ohio was a clusterfuck in 2004. Things aren’t any better 8 years later. Don’t you think we should have the whole fair election thing down by now?
