    Free Elections

    I was in my local video store the other day and was chatting with the clerk. This being Massachusetts and a big college town, the general tone was of an accepted state win for Kerry in the election. Talk turned to voting machines and problems with the 2000 election.

    "When the problems happened with the vote counting in Florida," he said, "I thought, well, it's too bad but at least they'll do something to correct the problems for future elections. I can't believe they're still having problems this year."

    We will undoubtedly be hearing more about this problem. Very likely, on and after election day. Some are predicting a repeat of the 2000 election. Here is a BBC story on voter intimidation in Florida. There are other stories as well, from the felon scrub list to the delay in adding new voters to the rolls. And a nice national map of election irregularities.
