Voting Machine Mess-up

Pender County, North Carolina. July, 2004. Microvote Infinity.
One of the county's 74 machines wouldn't tally the votes.

All of Pender County votes electronically, and the county has 74 of these machines. But on Tuesday, one of them didn't work.

"There was a machine that would not tally. We had the precinct workers bring in the machine for that and we had to extract those votes and count them manually," said Frances Pinion the Pender County Board of Elections Director.

News stories make it rapidly apparent that
electronic voting is not reliable, accurate, or secure.
Any one who claims otherwise is either uninformed or deceptive.
