Guest Blogged by John Gideon of It looks like there is strong talk about holding Premier/Diebold at fault for the problems in Hillsborough Co Florida. I'm not convinced that anything will be done except posturing by local officials. Premier claims they warned the county with an email sent in Sept. They did send an email but it is very hard to understand what the problem was and what the solutions were. Perhaps election officials should have asked Premier to be more clear? Perhaps the state should not have certified this system that is still going through the EAC testing and certification process?

The blame for the problem in Crawford Co Kansas has finally been put on the ballot programming in the county's ES&S system.

On election day a judge ordered machines in Northumberland Co Pennsylvania to be impounded because they were not working properly on straight-party voting. Now a plan on investigating the problem has been announced. The vendor, Premier/Diebold, will send technicians to investigate the problem. In other words the county only wants to know that they were at fault and the machines were faultless....
