Court Orders Special Re-Vote Tomorrow After 'Failure' of Montgomery
County, OH's New AccuVote TSX Machines!
County one of forty-four to implement new touch-screen machines for last November's
election resulting in inexplicable results...
Diebold Inc., one of America's largest voting machine companies, likes
to claim that there's never been any substantial problem with their touch-screen
machines in any election in America.
You may not be surprised to hear that claim is patently untrue.
reported in yesterday's Middletown Journal, a special "re-vote"
will be held tomorrow in Montgomery county, OH on an issue where last November's

AccuVote TSX touch-screen voting machines than there were actually registered
voters who voted!

Last November, the levy was narrowly defeated.
But those election results were set aside due to voting irregularities from
the new electronic touch screen voting machines.
More votes were cast than there were registered voters in the city’s

County Common Pleas Court ordered Tuesday’s special election at Montgomery
Montgomery County is one of 41 counties
in Ohio to have added new Diebold AccuVote TSX touch-screen (DRE) voting machines
for last November's election.
In that election, remarkable and virtually inexplicable results occurred across
the state in regard to four Election Reform initiatives on the ballot, all of
which were predicted to pass by large margins in a historically accurate poll
released just prior to Election Day. We wrote about the "staggeringly
impossible" results of that election back in November. Those results
have still not been explained, despite 44 of 88 counties in the Buckeye State
using all-new touch-screen voting machines for the first time in that election.
