Paper or electronic: Ballot debate lives on (Palm Beach County, FL)
By George Bennett

Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

Friday, September 30, 2005

Opponents of paperless electronic voting helped Arthur Anderson become Palm Beach County's elections supervisor, but so far they don't seem to be scoring many points with members of a technology panel that Anderson assembled.

At Thursday night's meeting of the Election Technology Advisory Committee, advocates for a ballot paper trail found themselves at odds with other panelists and with the consultant Anderson hired to help run the committee.

That consultant, Richard Giorgio, noted some factual errors in a handout to the committee from the Palm Beach Coalition for Election Reform. The part of the handout Giorgio mentioned highlighted controversies over Emil Danciu's loss in a 2002 Boca Raton council race in which Giorgio worked for one of Danciu's rivals.

"I object to Mr. Giorgio's comments," said Bruce Serell, the coalition's representative on the technology committee. "It just doesn't seem appropriate for him to make comments on it and go on about it."
