+ - Ohio Sues Over Missing Electronic Votes

Submitted by dstates
dstates writes: The Columbus Post Dispatch reports that the State of Ohio is suing Premier Election Systems (previously known as Diebold over malfunctions in electronic voting machines. Election workers found that votes were "dropped" in at least 11 counties when memory cards were uploaded to computer servers. The same voting machines are used nationwide. The company blames a conflict between their software and antivirus software for the problem and says that an advisory was issued on the subject. The Ohio lawsuit contends that the company made false representations and failed to live up to contractual obligations and seeks punitive damages.
