More voting machine troubles. There should be no need for state to mandate change in Clark County
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports: The problem at hand arose when Nevada Secretary of State Dean Heller declared a month ago, "My goal is to put everyone on the same system. We don't want different systems."  That wouldn't bother Clark County much if Mr. Heller just decided to spend the $10.7 million in federal money he has on hand through the act to buy Sequoia machines for rural and Northern Nevada. But when rumors circulated that Diebold Inc. one of Sequoia Pacific's competitors had offered to equip the entire state with its machines for the $10.7 million (which would mean trashing and replacing most of Clark County's 3,000 machines) Clark County officials grew concerned.

No surprise there. But Walden O'Dell — who says that he wasn't talking about his business operations — happens to be the chief executive of Diebold Inc., whose touch-screen voting machines are in increasingly widespread use across the United States.

Subsequent to Mr. Krugmans article, the following letters to the editor were posted:
