I took some heat last year when I supported a third-party candidate for California Secretary of State. I still think it's necessary to support strong third-party candidacies. However Debra Bowen, the Democrat who won the election, has been making some headlines recently, and they have been (mostly) good ones.
In July a study commissioned by Bowen found that, not too surprisingly, electronic voting machines can be hacked!
On August 3rd, informed by the results of that study, Bowen announced that she would decertify all the existing electronic voting machines in the state, and then recertify them under new rules.
