NEWS, NOV. 29, 2004, 2:37 a.m. PST On the same
day that a contest of the November election goes to court, the
web is rife with communication that Green Party activists will
file for a full statewide recount. Today is the deadline. The
number of no-paper-trail voting machines in populous Clark County,
wherein reside 70 percent of Nevada voters, looms as an issue
in both venues. Only 740 of 2,926 machines in Clark County had
paper backups. (Three of the most populous cities in the state,
Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Henderson, are located in Clark
County, better known as Gomorrah South to the locals.) Stay tuned

CITY (NOV 1, 2004, 2:23 p.m. PST)A Reno couple lost
their right to vote today for the crime of wanting to register
as Democrats. The Nevada Supreme Court turned down a motion for
a writ of mandamus which would have ordered county voter registrars
"to place in the voters register and poll book the names
of Petitioners (Eric and Traci Amberson) and all Represented Petitioners
who can present...documentation evidencing their good faith completion
and submission of voter registration forms."
Agosti, Becker, Gibbons, Maupin and Rose stated in their order
that "altough the petition raises signficant issues,"
they did not feel it appropriate to intervene. The court is "ill-equipped
to resolve factual issues such as whether petitioners are qualified
electors and whether they submitted properly complete voter registration
forms. The district court is the proper forum in which to resolve
this matter in the first instance." Justice Michael Douglas,
who is up for election tomorrow, recused himself.
stemmed from activities of a GOP-retained organization accused
in Nevada and other states of destroying registration forms of
people who registered as Democrats.
