Sequoia announces SoS has approved its touchscreens for use in Santa Clara this November

Sequoia Voting Systems News Release, June 14, 2004

Sequoia Voting Systems announced that California Secretary of State Kevin Shelley has re-approved use of Sequoia's AVC Edge touchscreen voting machine in Santa Clara county. In order for Sequoia to be recertified, the vendor must provide its source code to the Secretary of State. Santa Clara is one of six California counties using Sequoia's e-voting equipment. Two other Sequoia clients -- Riverside and San Bernardino -- are suing the Secretary of State over his recertification requirements.

Excerpts from the Sequoia news release:

Sequoia Voting Systems supplied the nearly 15,000 touch screen voting machines used by the California counties of Santa Clara, Riverside, San Bernardino, Shasta, Napa and Tehama. Nationally, Sequoia has provided more than 50,000 electronic voting units dating back nearly 25 years.

This September, Sequoia will be providing the State of Nevada with AVC Edge touch screen units for use in conjunction with the Sequoia VeriVote(R) printer. The printer will permit voters to see and verify a printed paper record of all of their selections before they leave the voting booth.
