Hating Gerrymandering Is Easy. Fixing It Is Harder. | The Cook Political Report

Cook Political Report

House Republicans Just Voted to Eliminate the Only Federal Agency That Makes Sure Voting Machines Can’t Be Hacked | The Nation


In a little-noticed 6-3 vote today, the House Administration Committee voted along party lines to eliminate the Election Assistance Commission, which helps states run elections and is the only federal agency charged with making sure voting machines can’t be hacked. The EAC was created after the disastrous 2000 election in Florida as part of the Help America Vote Act to rectify problems like butterfly ballots and hanging chads.

One Virginia 2021

MD Election Results

I found my sample ballot and compared them to election results on the Maryland State Board of Elections website. Apparently my provisional ballot was not counted. I email them about that.

My choice for US Senate and Congress won hands down along with my judges. My choices for Board of Education members lost. As for referenda, i got 2 of three questions.

What if Bush Wins?
