18. not for sure about Blackwell and Triad
I'll try checking out the history. Blackwell was pushing for Diebold and the lawsuits along with security flaws kept diebold from being all over Ohio. I'm still at the start of all my research, but one reason why I'm researching it is to know more about election reform.

What I can conclude is the paper trail was a major issue over using Diebold for e-voting. Election reform for e-voting was pushed as a attempt to get rid of punch-card machines. It was because of Blackwell's stubbornness that they were forced to scrape plans for diebold and be stuck with punch-card. The security flaws was reason for this.

This was also the reason why 3 counties were forced to use punch-card machines because the security flaw left them with not enough time to go with other plans.

I know there is some information out there about them trying to deny funds to Lucas county in order to lease machines out.
