It’s looking like some of Diebold’s choices may be coming back to haunt them a bit. While they’ve been loudly unapologetic for security holes that were found in their offerings (and quick to pull the legal trigger on anyone who pointed them out), perhaps they should have spent a little more time “doing the right thing” rather than “covering up the wrong thing.” The latest news is that California may ban Diebold from selling voting machines in the state, after investigating the claims that some of their machines were using software that had not been certified. Meanwhile, Fortune magazine has voted paperless electronic voting as the worst technology of 2003.
