Riverfront Times has an article on Judith Conoyer, co-founder with Phil Lindsey of Show Me the Vote, the petition drive for a constitutional amendment in Missouri requiring hand-counted paper ballots.  The writer lays out the problem with the machines, succinctly and clearly.

Conoyer, a 67-year-old St. Charles resident, co-founded Show Me The Vote in 2005, after becoming suspicious about the reliability of electronic voting machines during the 2004 presidential election. After traveling to Ohio to observe the well-publicized irregularities surrounding the touch-screen machines, Conoyer wondered whether Missouri’s election results were also inaccurate. In St. Charles County, for example, she discovered six precincts reported a voter turnout of more than 100 percent.

You go, Judy!  Phil, too!
