Midmorning: Voting technology and sports journalist Christine Brennan
Posted at 7:33 AM on November 30, 2006 by Bill Wareham
The memory of the midterm elections may be fading across the country, but problems with new voting technology snagged contests in Florida and Colorado, among other states. Experts worry these problems may tell us we're still not adjusting well to the new ways to vote. Kerri Miller's guests at 9 a.m. will be Doug Chapin, director of Electionline.org, and Larry Norden, counsel at the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University Law School. He's the lead author of the October 2006 Brennan Center report, "The Machinery of Democracy: Protecting Elections in an Electronic World."
At 10 a.m., pioneering sports journalist Christine Brennan joins Kerri to talk about working in a male-dominated field and the influence of her tough-talking dad. Brennan is a sports columnist for USA Today and is a commentator on NPR, ABC News, ESPN and FOX Sports Radio. Her new book is Best Seat in the House: A Father, A Daughter, A Journey Through Sports.
