Hello, neighbors,

It's remarkable that Maryland has become a focus of national attention
with regard to the issue of electronic voting machines because we do
not have a voter-verified paper receipt or ballot with our Diebold
machines.  Should a serious problem develop with the voting machines,
we could not have an actual recount.

Marion pointed me to a good article in Rolling Stone magazine by 
RFK, Jr.  titled "Will the Next Election Be Hacked?".  

There's free access on the web here:

Here's another interesting link.  VotersUnite.org publishes "Daily
Voting News" here:

I'm looking forward to the elections with both hope and concern.  I'll
be the Election Technician at the Barclay School, so I have to set up
the machines (and keep them working?).  I'm a little concerned because we
have one training session the Saturday before the elections, so I hope
that covers everything.
