One step towards fair elections

There's some good news with regards to fair elections. Diebold has announced development of a printer for their voting machines which would allow voters to receive a printout to verify that their vote was cast as they desired. The paper records would also allow for a recount. The printers were developed as Ohio, California, and Nevada already have laws requiring that a paper trail be maintained in future elections.

Now, if only something could be done about GOP voter suppression efforts and thier dishonest campaign practices. Wouldn't it be nice if people voted based upon the candidates' real positions and records, rather than based upon the distortions spread by the right wing noise machine?
