Reno citizen activist sues provider of electronic voting machines (sequoias)
RENO, Nev. (AP) - A citizen activist has sued a leading provider of electronic voting machines, claiming her vote in the 2004 general election was not counted because of a defective machine.

In her Washoe County District Court complaint filed Wednesday, Patricia Axelrod of Reno accuses Sequoia Voting Systems Inc. of negligence and property damage.

The suit also seeks more than $10,000 in damages, and a court order to require the public testing of all Sequoia machines in Washoe County and the repair of any defective machines.

"Sequoia management and product defect and negligence lost my 2004 vote, impaired the accurate results of the 2004 election and threatens the outcome of the 2006 elections," Axelrod said, adding she considers her vote "precious and personal private property."

Michelle Shafer, a vice president at Oakland, Calif.-based Sequoia, said she had not seen the suit yet and could not comment on it.
