Andy Stephenson, Voting Rights Activist gone

Robbdoggblog has some links here, obituary can be found here and another link at Democracy for Washington:

Andy was an activist in the true sense of the word, and continued working for clean and transparent elections right up to the last. He was convincing the Johns Hopkins staff about the need for "voter verified paper ballots" the minute woke up from his recent surgery! Through his time with Black Box Voting, his run for Secretary of State and his work around the country afterward, Andy was instrumental in bringing electronic voting issues to the forefront of our political discourse as a key issue facing the nation. In the truest sense of "Don't mourn, organize," Democracy for Washington will honor Andy by extending the fight for transparent elections and universal health care in Washington state.

He will be missed but his legacy will live on in those who continue the work he began.
