Major Ohio County Reconsiders E-Voting

November 30, 2006

After another election with flawed touch-screen electronic voting machines, Cuyahoga County, Ohio may say enough is enough. The AP reports:

"The commissioners of the state's most populous county are considering getting rid of touch-screen voting machines and putting in a new system for the presidential election in 2008.

"Cuyahoga County spent $14 million on the Nov. 7 election and cannot afford to spend that much every time voters go to the polls, especially the high volume that a presidential race generates, commissioners Tim Hagan and Jimmy Dimora said."

More and more, election officials and voters are starting to see the pitfalls of e-voting and pursue real reform. Recently, EFF and a coalition of voting integrity groups, representing Sarasota County voters, filed suit in state court in Tallahassee asking for a re-vote in Florida's 13th congressional district.
