Diebold Quietly Repaired Voting Machines

Reports: Diebold Repaired Thousands of Voting Machines
Without Telling Md. Officials

BALTIMORE - Diebold Election Systems quietly replaced flawed components in several thousand Maryland voting machines in 2005 to fix a "screen-freeze" problem the company had discovered three years earlier, according to published reports Thursday.

State Board of Elections Chairman Gilles W. Burger said Diebold's failure to fully inform board members of the repairs at the time raises questions about whether the company violated its state contracts.
