More Votes Lost By Diebold; Discovered By Unique Voting Transparency Project
from the reliable,-huh? dept
Yet, even after this glitch was officially revealed, in the election just last month, we're now finding out that Diebold machines caused 200 lost votes in an election in California. Even worse, no one would even know about this at all if it weren't for a highly ambitious and very unique program set up by some voting activists to ensure there was real transparency. They convinced the local government to let them scan every single ballot and put it online for anyone to view. It was that separate process where they discovered the ballot counts didn't match, and that Diebold seemed to show absolutely no records of the missing ballots, despite having scanned them.
Makes you kinda wonder how many other areas lost votes that absolutely no one knows about because they didn't have such a system in place, huh?
