We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Diebold Is Out of North Carolina Wednesday, November 30, 2005

Diebold, the company known for their electronic voting machines may be in for quite a time. The state of North Carolina kicked them out.

A hat tip to TechDirt for info on this one

Many people have complained for sometime that electronic voting machines are just as easy to tamper with as any other voting method. A recent law in North Carolina requires all vendors of electronic voting machines to open up the source code of the computers up to voting officials in the state. Diebold refused to do it. The only other option for Diebold was to remove themselves from the market if they didn't wish to comply.

Doesn't sound too fishy does it... no not at all. With any luck, others will start looking at this and consider requiring Diebold to open up their code. As the The Register points out, transparency is the only way to get fair elections.

Excellent! And to think a bleeding red state did it! Hopefully other states will follow suit. It'd be nice if the Diebold scandal was exposed while we are cleaning our house of corruption. Maybe a leaked memo, an email, you know, something that says they switched Kerry votes to bushie.

About bloody time we had someone paying attention. Diebold has been a blot on honesty in voting. There are SO MANY oddities connected to their machines that if the MSM were to seriously investigate, we might actually unseat a few 'elected' officials.

If only others will follow the same lead...
