Maryland Bans Diebold Voting Machines
« on: Mar 10 06 01:59 »
It's about time. Thank you, Maryland!

Computerworld.com reports:

The state Maryland House of Delegates this week voted 137-0 to approve a bill [a href="http://www.computerworld.com/governmenttopics/government/legislation/story/0,10801,109436,00.html?source=NLT_PM&nid=109436"]prohibiting election officials from using Diebold's "AccuVote-TSx" touch-screen systems[/a] in 2006 primary and general elections. The legislation calls for the state to lease paper-based optical-scan systems for this year's votes. State Delegate Anne Healey estimated the leasing cost at $12.5 million to $16 million for the two elections.
