Diebold, the company that helped steal the 2004 presidential election, is in the news again. Diebold’s electonic voting machines were used for a 2004 California vote on medical marijuana. The vote results were close enough that the results were challenged. Instead of turning the voting machines over for independent audit, county official sent all the machines back to Diebold. While at Diebold, 96% of the records were mysteriously deleted. Just last week, a judge voided the results and ordered a new vote. The judge also ordered the county officials to reimburse those that filed suit. Thankfully, the legislative branch of government will still occasionally apply the rule of law in a fair manner.
