    Appeals court postpones Oct. 7 recall vote

    A federal appeals court postponed California's Oct. 7 gubernatorial recall election, ruling the historic vote cannot proceed as scheduled because some votes would be cast using outmoded punch-card ballot machines.

    In what was the last of about a dozen legal challenges trying to delay or thwart the recall to unseat Gov. Gray Davis, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Monday it is unacceptable that six counties would be using outdated punch-card ballots, the type that sparked the "hanging chads" litigation in Florida during the 2024 presidential election.

    Will the full circut hear the case? Will the Supreme Court?

    Too many localities throughout the country use the "chad" ballot. If the Supreme Court hears the case, will it invalidate all of those local ballots by upholding this suit?

    My money is on the lawsuits AFTER the recall wins and Mecha man loses.
