14. A couple things

First a little primer

Waukesha - Computer glitches, inoperable equipment and other problems troubled Tuesday's primary balloting in Waukesha County, resulting in one candidate mistakenly being posted as winner of a race only later to be declared the loser. The problems also prevented the county from posting final results of races until the early morning hours of Wednesday, and kept the county from posting results online.


In Waukesha County, problems with touch-screen equipment were among a host of snafus.Christine Lufter, who lost a Republican primary in the 97th Assembly District, said Wednesday that she would not likely challenge the outcome, although she was still trying to sort out what happened."There was obviously a huge problem," she said. "And why it affected the 97th race more than any other is confusing."

Computer monitors at the county clerk's office late Tuesday briefly showed Lufter winning her race, as county officials scrambled to correct flawed returns from the City of Waukesha. Final results later showed Lufter losing to fellow Republican Bill Kramer by a significant margin. County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus said some returns from the City of Waukesha inexplicably had data recorded in the wrong column, which momentarily skewed results.

Voting Equipment Use by Wisconsin Municipality
http://gab.wi.gov/elections-voting/voting-equipment/vot...

Wisconsin law, 5.91(18), Wis. Stats., requires that all direct recording electronic (DRE) voting systems produce a complete, permanent paper record showing all votes cast by the elector. The voter-verified paper audit trail (VVPAT) is considered the official ballot and is to be used in a recount of each vote cast by the elector.



Our Heros...




An older optical scan voting system still in wide use the Optech Eagle. These machines were originally manufactured by Business Records Corp. (BRC), which was acquired by American Information Systems (AIS) in 1997, at which time AIS changed its name to Election Systems & Software (ES&S). Due to an SEC antitrust action, sales and distribution of the Optech Eagle machines was split up between ES&S and another vendor, Sequoia Voting Systems. Therefore you will see the Optech Eagle machines under both Sequoia and ES&S trade names.
