Diebold Problems Slow Election Results In Alaska
from the sure,-you-can-trust-those-machines... dept
With the ridiculous number of voting machine flaws that have been reported concerning Diebold e-voting machines, you'd think the company would be careful to make sure the most basic things, such as being able to have the machines send in its results, would work properly. Apparently not. Up in Alaska, the results from a recent election were slowed after numerous Diebold machines failed to actually report the results of the election. Election officials needed to "manually upload" the results from the machines. If the machines can fail on something as basic as that, is it any wonder that so many of us ask why there aren't backup systems in these machines for the purpose of a recount?
