Editorial Daytona News-Journal 05 December 2005

Later this month, the Volusia County Council has an ugly decision to make. County officials face a Jan. 1 deadline to buy handicapped-accessible voting machines. They can opt for touch-screen equipment manufactured by Diebold (the same company that makes the elections equipment the county already owns) but that don't produce paper ballots. Or they can scrap the entire system and turn to a Diebold competitor, Election Systems & Software.

Opinion Mary Kiffmeyer Twin Cities Pioneer Press 04 December 2005
Recently, an article appeared in the Pioneer Press regarding Minnesota's rejection of certification of an election system called a Direct Recording Electronic voting system, which is ballot-less, produced by Diebold ("Kiffmeyer, counties at odds over voting equipment," Nov. 30). This system failed certification in California because of receipt jams and computer crashes. This system is not good enough for Minnesota, either, and I'd like to tell you why.

Opinion Baltimore Sun 04 December 2005
Americans' electronic election tallies still are not safe or reliable, according to a thorough review by the Government Accountability Office, and won't be in time for the balloting in 2006. The problem: lack of meaningful national standards for how the machines should work and how to independently verify results. The solution: Fully fund and support the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, which is assigned to set these standards, and ensure states abide by them.

BEN THOMPSON, The North Platte Telegraph 04 December 2005
In a visit to North Platte Friday, Secretary of State John Gale said all 93 Nebraska counties are now in compliance with the federal Help America Vote Act. The act stemmed from the 2000 election, when Florida's voting system was the focus of national attention and led to changes in voting laws nationwide. The act is the result, in part, of a compromise between those who want a totally federalized voting system and the secretaries of state, who want to maintain state and local control of the voting process.
