Guest Blogged by John Gideon of On March 4 election officials in Butler Co Ohio discovered that even though their system said that all memory cards had been read, in fact the system did not read one of the cards. This is an error in accuracy. Last Thursday Diebold issued a report to the county to report the results of their investigation. Diebold will fix the software problem and send it through the federal certification process. It appears that the county will just live with the problem and mitigate it with administrative procedures. First, this is a violation of HAVA Section 301(a)(5) but more importantly why would any county use a voting system that has already proven itself to be inaccurate? This is an outrage....
