California voting machines: Good news.

Debra Bowen, California Secretary of State--responsible for the conduct of elections--has just announced a top-to-bottom review of voting systems certified for use in California. Some of the top experts in the field have been recruited to lead the effort, which will cost about $1.8 million (compared to the $450 million spent or set aside to upgrade California’s voting equipment over the past several years). The review will be complete in time to ensure the use of the reviewed systems in the 2008 elections.

More states should be doing this, until the Federal government steps up and conducts comparable studies for all systems nationally.
