Restitution to be made for election trouble
By ERIN DOSSReporter

Iroquois County is receiving funds from Fidlar Election Company to make restitution for problems on election night.

Iroquois County Clerk Mark Henrichs said yesterday that the county have already received a $4,000 discount on an $18,000 bill, and said he is seeking additional relief.
Iroquois County Board chairman Ron Schroeder said Larry Mandel and Sue Rippe, company representatives, spoke to the board's Policy and Procedure Committee Monday.

He said Mandel gave a summary of what happened with the program election night. He said a problem was discovered with the audio file for the touch screen voting machines prior to the election. This required the company to reprogram the memory cards.

However, not all of the cards were successfully reconfigured, resulting in the inability of the system to upload the election data. Instead, the data had to be entered manually the next day.

Schroeder said Mandel told the committee that the project manager assigned to the county failed to properly analyze the situation and gave the wrong instructions to fix it.

Henrichs said he was told the project engineer "no longer had those duties."

This story appears in the December 13 edition of the Times-Republic.
