Quotes--

Columbus - Ohio's sweeping review of electronic voting machines turned up so many potential security flaws in the systems that the state's top elections offi cial has called off deploying them in March. ...

Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, who ordered the review, said he and machine vendors are confident that all 57 problems identified by investigators can be fixed. ...

Blackwell said he will seek a waiver under the Help America Vote Act to give Ohio until 2006 to implement the technology. ....

The review confirmed a laundry list of security flaws that some observers had tried to dismiss as merely alarmist. ...

Voting-machine technology guru Bev Harris of blackboxvoting.org praised Blackwell for releasing such a comprehensive study. She said about two-thirds of a similar review conducted on Diebold technology in Maryland was blacked out before it was released. ...
