The heroic Paul Lehto, who has been fighting to get touch-screen voting machines OUT of Washington state, has some great news:
Unless a minor county snuck in with DREs that I didn’t hear about, Washington state is now completely free of DREs (and BLUE!)!!! The county I sued shifted the balance of power to Democrats on the county council and the Dems just canned the Sequoia DREs effective September 2005 in favor of an Oregon vote by mail type system (or vote by dropoff at a regional drop off facility).
If you’re interested in verifying that angle that there are no longer any DREs in use in POLLING PLACES as opposed to for legitimately disabled voters, firstname.lastname@example.org would know for sure.
Here’s the DU post as well as a link there to the local press.
