Elections officials in Volusia County, Florida give incorrect
information to a "Freedom of Information Act" request by Bev Harris
of BlackBoxVoting.org? Why do the numbers she's found seem to
indicate inaccuracies in the vote counting there? And why were
official election materials found in the dumpster outside the Board
of Elections when Harris and her team arrived?

important than ever. Reprinted from The International Labor Communications Association:

- the OH recount effort by the Green and Libertarian parties (they
currently have $112k out of the $150k needed to file the request).
http://www.washingtondispatch.com/spectrum/archives/000723.html

If interested, you can donate here:
http://web.greens.org/c/cobb/supporters.cgi?function=donate (type
OHIO RECOUNT in the text field to indicate this is not a Green party
donation) Note than in addition to the roughly 155k provisional
votes, 90000 'over/undervote' uncounted ballots will be included in
the OH provisional ballot counting, bringing the total number of
expected ballots to ~240k. It has not been confirmed if this figure
includes all absentee ballots.

- the Nader-requested NH recount is set to begin. If irregularities
are uncovered, they may provide cause for candidates to request more
recounts in other states.

- Four prominent, supposedly unaffiliated reports addressing the
discrepancy between the exit polls and results for optical-scan votes
favoring Bush over Kerry. One paper says the difference, while
unexplained, is within the expected margin of error. The other three
claim the chance of this occuring are between 1 in 1 billion and 1 in
250 million.

- the Media response to the Irregularities issue, ranging from
ongoing dismissal, role of bloggers, et. al., new reports of Patriot
Act and other potential restrictions over free speech, increasing
coverage nonetheless. Role of media to lead, rather than respond, is
not yet on the table.
