Daily Voting News For December 17, 2007

Daily Voting News For December 17, 2007

Guest Blogged by John Gideon of

A very busy day today. There are still articles about the EVEREST report completed in the state of Ohio. Based on that report, recommendations were made to Cuyahoga County to change their voting system and vendor from DREs by Premier to central-count optical scan by ES&S. It appears that the county is going to do the correct thing and not make any rash decisions. They should probably make some changes but not a wholesale change of vendors and certainly not when that vendor is ES&S. A final decision will be made later this week.

This afternoon the state of Colorado announced that they were decertifying all voting machines and peripherals from ES&S as well as the Sequoia Edge II and Edge II Plus and optical scan systems provided by Hart Intercivic. Voting systems from Premier, optical scan and peripherals from Sequoia and DREs and peripherals from Hart were conditionally certified.

Also two amicus briefs were filed today in the NY v. DOJ case....
