Diebold completes e-voting printer prototype
Advertisements [?]

Diebold Inc. said Thursday it has completed a prototype printer designed for use with touch-screen electronic voting machines, allowing voters to print, review and verify ballot selections.

"Voter verified paper receipts are something new," said David Bear, a spokesman for subsidiary Diebold Election Systems in McKinney, Texas.

"No other type of voting provides a receipt for voters. But some states are asking for it, so we needed to develop a product that meets standards for functionality," he said.

Voters can view their selections, but will not be able to remove the printout. The voter's printed selections would be placed into a secure enclosure, stored and numbered with a security tag. The printer weighs less than three pounds. The printer will be submitted to independent testing authorities to ensure that it meets federal standards as a prerequisite to certification in states, Bear said.
