Cuyahoga County Commissioners want to replace Diebold Electronic Voting Machines - You won't believe
what Utah wants to do!


www.cleveland.com/news/plaindealer/index.ssf?/base/cuya...

Cuyahoga County will most likely be scrapping the same voting systems
that Utah now uses. Utah election officials like Lt. Governor Herbert
and Sherrie Swensen would like to purchase the old voting systems
being scrapped by Cuyahoga County, OH!

The above article explains concisely some of the advantages of paper
ballot optical scan systems over DRE touchscreens.

Let us hope that Utah's election officials get smart instead and move
to a less expensive, more reliable, secure paper ballot precinct-based
optical scan voting system, and implement real manual audits of
machine vote counts - unlike the sham procedure conducted in November
2006 which merely compared two paper records and never publicly
released the actual machine counts or compared the voter-verified
paper record counts to the machine counts used in the actual tallies.
