Unanimous California Voting Systems Panel Weighs in Against Paperless Diebold Electronic Voting Machines
California's Voting Systems Panel has just voted unanimously that the Diebold TSx paperless electronic voting system be decertified for use in California. Although the final decision is up to California Secretary of State Kevin Shelley, he is expected to follow the recommendation of the board before April 30, 2004.
The Voting Systems Panel did not recommend against continued use of the Diebold TS electronic voting machines or use of optical-scan voting machines. The GEMs software is also not affected by this decision.
VerifiedVoting.org Legislative Analyst Bob Kibrick testified at the Voting Systems Panel hearings.
