15. PA: County looks into voting machine bugs
While three of Bradford Countys touch-screen voting machines were reported to have malfunctioned on Election Day earlier this month, two now seem to be working fine and the third will be sent back to the manufacturer to be repaired, an elections official said.

The malfunctioning of the three machines was the first time that the countys touch-screen voting machines have not worked properly since the county began using them in the spring of 2006, said Marie Zbyszinski, Bradford County elections director.

Since the May 2006 primary election, the county has been using only electronic touch-screen voting machines manufactured by Diebold Election Systems Inc. of McKinney, Texas.

On Nov. 4, 2008, before the polls opened, Bradford County elections workers found that the screen of one of the machines would not illuminate and the internal printer on a second machine was operating too slowly, Zbyszinski said. Both machines were replaced with back-up machines before the polls opened that day, she said.
