IN THE NEWS: VOTER IDs IN THE DIGITAL AGE

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) -- It's voter ID's -- high-tech style. A state senator in New Mexico is trying to bring biometrics into the equation as lawmakers try to balance the need to prevent against possible voter fraud -- while keeping the right to vote intact. Senate Minority Whip William Payne has introduced a legislative proposal that calls for the state's top elections officials to look into new technology to produce voter IDs. That could mean the use of retinal scans or the kind of fingerprint sensors some smartphones and tablets already have. Payne says since "everyone has an eyeball or thumb that could be scanned," it should eliminate the concerns some opponents of photo IDs have raised. Payne notes his first primary election in 1996 was settled by a coin toss after several recounts and a tie. He says he sees himself as "the poster boy for 'every vote counts."'

IN THE NEWS: CHINA BLOCKING VPN SERVICES

BEIJING (AP) -- China is taking new steps to keep its people from finding out what's going on outside its borders. Tech companies are complaining that the Beijing government has been blocking VPN services. Virtual Private Networks have been used by some to get around government censorship of popular Web sites such as Google and Facebook. The Chinese government blocks thousands of sites to prevent what it considers politically sensitive information from reaching Chinese users. Many foreigners in China as well as millions of Chinese depend on VPNs to connect to servers outside the country and access blocked information and Google-based business tools.
