'Daily Voting News' For July 1, 2008


New Yorkers should be concerned about the quality of their voting systems. In today’s featured article Rady Ananda quotes the Co-Chair of the New York State Board of Elections (SBOE), Doug Kellner, who has said, “The voting industry sells crap, and that is the problem”. Ananda goes on to relate problems discovered with voting machines once they get to the counties, after SBOE testing. One county has complained that their Sequoia Ballot Marking Device (BMD)[voting machines for voters with disabilities that mark a ballot but do not tabulate the results] printers jam. It seems that Sequoia knows all about this defect but has neglected to mention it to the counties. Ananda goes on to compare the “crap” with the lever voting machines the state’s voters have used for decades.
