The Case for Optical Scan Voting Technology (Connecticut)    Story Here  Archive
Published:Thursday, June 30, 2005
John Nussbaum The Newtown Bee 30 June 2005
Next year, Connecticut voters may shake their head at the irony responsible for replacing our voting machines, but they will shake their fists if they believe Connecticut chose the wrong machine. The mechanical lever machine was invented to replace paper ballots in 1892, 15 years after the fiercely contested presidential election of Rutherford B. Hayes. Due to a similar presidential election in 2000, the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) was passed and mandates that we now generate a paper record of votes to allow a manual audit or recount. The irony is that the greatest century of technological advances has brought us back to counting votes on paper.

Visual impairment group joins voting fray (Volusia Co., FL)    Story Here  Archive

In the see-saw battle over touch-screen voting machines in Volusia County, one thing seemed certain Monday. If or when the issue goes to court, it will be quite a tangle.

Touch-screen voting better choice (Volusia Co., FL)    Story Here  Archive
Published:Tuesday, June 28, 2005
DOUG HALL Opinion Daytona Beach News-Journal 28 June 2005
Two opinions that dealt with accessible voting in Volusia County appeared in The News-Journal on June 22. I take issue with both. In the editorial, "Stand firm, Diebold deal wrong for Volusia," the writer emphasized that the system needs to be voter verifiable and said that this is not the case with the touch-screen system. I disagree with that statement, because the system verbally lets the print-impaired voter wearing the headphones know what votes he cast and the screen shows a recap of votes cast for those with sight. This certainly does meet the intent of the Help America Vote Act, and it meets the requirements of Florida's certification process as being "independently voter verifiable."

Diebold touch screens don't meet disability requirements (Volusia Co., FL)    Story Here  Archive
Published:Tuesday, June 28, 2005
Susan Pynchon Opinion 28 June 2005
The Diebold voting machines being proposed for Volusia County don't meet the requirements of the Help America Vote Act. The shocking part is, they don't have to. It's only 2005 and the law doesn't go into effect until Jan. 1, 2006, so vendors are able to sell, this year, whatever type of voting systems they can get away with selling.
