Secretary of State Debra Bowen Checks Out NH Voting Machines

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We've been hot on the trail of friend-of-LAist Jacob Soboroff and his Why Tuesday? voting-system reform initiative and 2008 campaign coverage. This morning he sent in an interview with our very own Secretary of State Debra Bowen, who was in New Hampshire yesterday to check out the efficiency of that state's No. 2 pencil-driven computerized voting systems.

Visit Why Tuesday? for more on SoS Bowen's commitment to certifiable voting machines as well as '08 presidential candidates' viewpoints of our imperfect electoral system -- why, after all, don't we vote on Saturday or Sunday?
