Voting machine-haters, take heart. In August, California Secretary of State Debra Bowen withdrew approval of San Francisco's ESS InkaVote optically scanned ballots for tomorrow's election. That means the city known for its Web 2.0 boomlet will have to hand-count the election, a process that could take weeks to determine the outcome of tight contests. Way to go, Frisco! If you're looking to catch up on e-voting shenanigans, BradBlog isn't as nutty as the site's design suggests. My favorite twist: Disgraced machine maker Diebold has renamed itself to — wait for it — Premier Election Solutions.
