Post-election discussions

So voting is completed and the votes are counted (except for a few recounts across the US). Now it is time to evaluate how everything worked. For those of you who had problems voting in Denver, Mayor John Hickenlooper and City Council President Michael Hancock are holding a series of meetings to discuss the elections.

On the subject of voting machines the U.S. Elections Assistance Commission is looking for comments on it's draft Procedural Manual for Voting System Testing and Certification Program.
The Washington Post reported on these guidelines in the article "Security of Electronic Voting Condemned."

Finally, the Colorado Secretary of State will be releasing the official election results today. As of this morning they are still not up, but they should be up this afternoon on the Elections Center web site.
