Barbara Jean Hope’s feature story, “Who is counting your vote? Diebold & Bush vs. the public interest” (PWW, 1/17-23), has generated considerable interest among our readers and on the World Wide Web. The article details the potential dangers of moving to electronic voting machinery and Internet-based voting, and the close links between some of the manufacturers of these machines, the Bush administration, and several personalities in the intelligence community.

Readers have commented on the article’s timeliness and comprehensiveness, and several readers have posted the story to Indymedia news web sites around the country, including Cleveland, Denver, Los Angeles, New York City. Even Vancouver, Canada, is now running the story.

We encourage our readers to do so elsewhere, not only with this story, but with future articles from the People’s Weekly World and Nuestro Mundo.
