Florida Court Rejects Demand for Paperless E-voting

Decision Confirms County Council's Ability to Purchase
Accessible, Auditable Equipment

July 21, 2005

Orlando, FL - A federal District Court judge in Florida ruled today that Volusia County is not required to purchase touchscreen voting machines that do not produce a voter-verifiable paper trail. Pending appeal, the county may now move forward with its plans to purchase voting equipment that is both accessible to disabled voters and that creates an auditable paper trail to protect against errors and fraud.
