Election fixes stir worries on ballot security (TX)    Story Here  Archive
ALAN BERNSTEIN Houston Chronicle 14 November 2007

Johnnie German admitted he was nervous as he used high-security codes to tap into the Harris County elections computer system last week and change some of the results manually. The system was in good hands as the votes were counted from the sprawling Nov. 6 contests. German is the county's respected administrator of elections, and there were witnesses present as he corrected the vote totals on a sales tax referendum for a fire/ambulance district in the Cypress-Fairbanks area of northwest Harris County.

Scott County Virginia Star 14 November 2007

With many of the computerized voting machines not working in some precincts, members of the county electoral board and the registrar's placed the sole blame on the malfunction on the company that provided the equipment. Officials should have downloaded specific upgrades from the manufacturer and restarted the machine prior to the election. Somewhere along the line, many of the county's 45 machines (30 in all) weren't properly upgraded and didn't work for most of the day.

Mark Shaffer The Ironton Tribune 14 November 2007

The company that does the programming for Lawrence County’s electronic voting system says human error is to blame for the mix-up in the Hamilton Township trustee race. According to the results on election night, Allan Blankenship won over Bill Robinson, 374 to 170. The trouble was that the opposite was true.

Pamela McLoughlin New Haven Register 13 November 2007

EAST HAVEN — A recount of votes in Tuesday's election showed Democrat April Capone Almon with a bigger lead than first tallied over Republican Mayor Joseph Maturo Jr., but the results were not certified Sunday night. Head Moderator Lori Jaffe announced at about 8:15 p.m. Sunday that the recounting had been completed but she will turn to Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz for guidance because there is a discrepancy between the number of ballots counted and the number of voters who came in on election day.

Info on voting flaws not shared (National)    Story Here  Archive
By M.C. MOEWE, Daytona Beach News Journal Online, November 12, 2007
While only a handful of companies make voting machines used in the United States, there is no nationwide system that enables election supervisors to share information about the devices such as machine failures and studies outlining security concerns.

Diebold official answers questions about voting machines (FL)    Story Here  Archive
Daytona Beach News Journal Online, November 12, 2007
Election officials in Volusia County say memory card failures on the AccuVote optical scan machines have been an issue in elections here for years. Though the machine's manufacturer said Volusia County's memory card failure rate was unusual, a Daytona Beach News-Journal analysis showed several counties in Florida have failure rates comparable to or higher than Volusia. Diebold Inc.'s Premier Election Solutions officials told the News-Journal last week that the higher failure rate stems from a problem with the J40 connector, the part on the machine that connects to the memory card. Memory cards are used to electronically hold votes.

Another sorry attempt to deny voting rights (GA)    Story Here  Archive
ajc.com. By LAUGHLIN McDONALD 11/09/07
Prior to this week's election, a group in Statesboro, Ga., styling itself Statesboro Citizens for Good Government challenged 909 registered voters on the grounds that as students at Georgia Southern University, they were not residents entitled to vote in city elections. State law requires such challenges to "specify distinctly the grounds of the challenge." Far from being distinct, the 909 challenges used an identical form, with a blank space for filling in the names of individual voters, and identical language that "the elector has come to Statesboro, Georgia, only for the temporary purpose of attending Georgia Southern University."

While all of the races in this year's elections in Mercer County appear to be resolved, a few votes remain to be counted.

Poll workers failed to bring the cartridges from the seven machines to the county clerk's office after polls closed Tuesday.

LA PORTE Although glitches greeted voters at five polling places Tuesday morning, the La Porte County Clerk’s office received only one complaint. One of the computers used to program the voting machines had an incorrect date for the election Jan. 1, 2008. The machines don’t turn on if the programmed date doesn’t coincide with the actual date, Ralph Howes, member of La Porte County Election Board, told The La Porte County Herald-Argus Tuesday morning.

Cuyahoga County's rocky election night leaves a lot of questions (OH)    Story Here  Archive
Joe Guillen Cleveland Plain Dealer 08 November 2007
Cuyahoga County elections officials dubbed Tuesday's election a success, although they were not able to report final vote totals until 11:30 a.m. Wednesday. That's 10 to 12 hours later than reports from seven other Ohio counties, and 16 hours after polls closed, raising new doubts about whether the county's electronic voting system can handle the November 2008 presidential election.

Jan Hefler Philadelphia Inquirer 08 November 2007
Camden County poll workers botched the retrieval of election results from seven electronic machines Tuesday night, and none of the votes cast on them will be counted - for now. No election outcomes were affected because the machines were in places that did not have close races, County Superintendent of Elections Phyllis Pearl said. The machines were in Camden, Cherry Hill, Gloucester City, Oaklyn and Pennsauken.
