W.Va. Halts New Voting Machines

JOSELYN KING - September 24, 2008

WHEELING - Ohio and Hancock county officials wanted more voting machines in time for the Nov. 4 general election, but the West Virginia Elections Commission has opted not to certify the new devices.

At question are new parts and modifications within the machines now being manufactured by Elections Systems and Software of Chicago, the state's vendor for touchscreen voting equipment. The changes have not yet been reviewed and approved by commission members.
