Sky in Ft. Collins

It’s early. 5:43AM in California. We’re headed to Larimer County, Colorado where in 2004 147,112 out of 157,903 people voted. Unreal, right? We’re going to meet up with County Clerk Scott Doyle and see what the deal is! After that we’re on to Iowa where we’ll be brining the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge to the presidential candidates. I’m looking forward to seeing some Larimer blue sky, pictured left. The smoke from the wildfires here has filled the horizon for days.

Speaking of Colorado, friend of Why Tuesday? Brad Friedman at his BRAD Blog has this exclusive piece of news: certification testing for ES&S voting machines in Colorado has been suspended “due to a failure to provide required documentation and other materials needed to complete testing.”
