Voting Machine Mess-up


Culpeper and Westmoreland Counties, Virginia. November, 2004. Unilect.
DRE Malfunctions caused long lines at the polls.

Electronic voting machine malfunctions caused long lines in the 2004 general election.*

Two Unilect voting machines went down at Cardova precinct for about 30 minutes, creating long lines. Those waiting were told that people were voting too fast and machines didnít have time to reset.

In Westmoreland, all four machines at the 2nd District precinct at Hague were down for an hour while Unilect manager Wout J. Kymmell worked on the problem. At least 75 people waited to vote in a line stretching around the building.

News stories make it rapidly apparent that
electronic voting is not reliable, accurate, or secure.
Any one who claims otherwise is either uninformed or deceptive.
