Volusia County Dumps Paperless Electronic Voting

December 16, 2005: Volusia County, Florida today voted to dump paperless electronic voting machines made by Diebold, choosing instead to ultimately use more trustworthy machines from ES&S that provide a voter-verifiable paper ballot. In a move widely seen as a victory for trustworthy voting advocates, the county council chose equipment that both meets the needs of disabled voters and preserves the integrity of election results.

Earlier this year, CPSR signed an amicus brief in a related court case, opposing a lawsuit that would have forced Volusia County to buy Diebold equipment. The amicus was written by EFF and signed by several organizations.
