Technical Problems Reported in E-Voting

By Rachel Konrad, the Associated Press, 03/02/04

AP is reporting that a number of states using electronic voting systems ran into problems early into Election Day, and that paper ballots are being used in many polling places until problems are fixed.

KFI Radio in Southern California received dozens of calls this morning from voters in Orange and San Diego counties -- reportedly voters in Fallbrook, San Diego are finding that the Diebold TSx machines are freezing up. In Republican-leaning Orange County, voters in some polling places using Hart Intercivic's electronic voting system reportedly are finding they are unable to cast anything other than a Democratic party ballot.
