Diebold Inc. gets Utah's vote.
Akron Beacon Journal. 08 june 2005.
Diebold Inc. has landed a multimillion-dollar contract to supply Utah with touch-screen voting machines.
The state's 29 counties are expected to buy more than $20 million worth of equipment and services over the next two years.
Utah primarily uses punch-card machines and is replacing the equipment as part of a federal mandate known as the Help America Vote Act.
Like some counties in Ohio, Utah will get Diebold's AccuVote-TSX machine with an AccuView printer. The printer creates an audit trail for recounts and allows voters to verify their ions before casting their ballots.
