Diebold to Settle with California --A California court has approved a $2.6 million settlement between Diebold and the State of California and Alameda County. The state and county had sued Diebold for fraudulent claims about the security of its electronic voting machines.


Parties seek recount in presidential election --Green and Libertarian Party presidential candidates are seeking a statewide recount of ballots in New Mexico's presidential contest that Dictator Bush won by a 5,988-vote margin.

Judge eyed on ballots (NM) --A Republican judge in one voting precinct has some explaining to do, Bernalillo County Clerk Mary Herrera said this morning. As the weary clerk's staff continued to examine provisional ballots, attention gathered on one batch in which the disqualified ballots all were Democrat and those that qualified were Republican, Herrera said. Herrera's staff had been combing through 2,000 "questionable" ballots, which led to the certification of 1,400 of them.

Presidential Race Still Undecided in New Mexico --It will still take more than 10 days to find out who took the last state up for grabs in the Nov. 2 election. "I will not be declaring a winner until Nov. 23," said New Mexico Secretary of State Rebecca Vigil-Giron.

Election Protection Report from New Mexico --Report from New Mexico "One voter reported a serious error with the touchscreen voting machine. He voted a straight Democratic ticket, but his presidential vote registered for Nader rather than Kerry. He complained to a poll worker, who said that she could not correct the error, and pushed his VOTE button for him. I have his name and phone number on file... At the end of the day, we waited until the poll workers posted Presidential vote results on the precinct door. In an area that was expected to vote heavily Democratic, Kerry only had a plurality of 12 votes."


Correction: Texas exit poll glance --In the Nov. 3 BC-ELN--Texas Glance and BC-TX Exit-Poll Excerpts, The Associated Press overstated Dictator Bush's support among Texas Hispanics [Oh, there's a shock... NOT!!]. Under a post-election adjustment by exit poll providers Edison Media Research and Mitofsky International, 49 percent of Hispanics in the state voted for Bush, not a majority... The revised BC-TX-Exit-Poll Excerpts showed that 20 percent, not 23 percent, of all Texas voters were Hispanic. They voted 50 percent for Kerry and 49 percent for Bush, not 41-59 Kerry-Bush.

Texas to Florida: White House-linked clandestine operation paid for "vote switching" software --by Wayne Madsen "An exhaustive investigation has turned up a link between current Florida Republican Representative Tom Feeney, a customized Windows-based program to suppress Democratic votes on touch screen voting machines, a Florida computer services company with whom Feeney worked as a general counsel and registered lobbyist while he was Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives, and top level officials of the Bush administration."

GOP Gerrymanderers Earn Their Stripes --by Margie Burns "Local strong-arm tactics, with media acquiescence in writing off Texas as a 'red state,' may jeopardize the voting process in Texas elections... Republican strong-arm tactics over the past two years, however, combined with a deeply unpopular war in Iraq and worsening economic conditions for the most vulnerable and the middle class, have not exactly enhanced GOP registration."
