Nassau County Suing To Get Old Voting Machines Back
By ROB HOELL wpix.com


MINEOLA, N.Y. (WPIX)
If you didn't like the new voting machines you're not alone, and if Nassau County gets its way in court the old lever machines will be back.

The county saw its fair share of glitches this Election Day. Officials say the phones lit up at the Board of Elections with complaints ballots weren't scanning and computers were malfunctioning.

Now, Nassau is suing to get the old voting machines back.
"We feel that it's a public policy mistake to switch over from a lever system that people have confidence in and is trustworthy and is reliable to an electronic system that creates its own problems," said Board of Elections Commissioner William Biamonte.
