Voting Technology

We must replace our current systems. Our current voting technology is not reliable and trustworthy.

  • In 2007, an examination of the iVotronic system by three security groups recommended against using them. Problems existed with both the design and coding.

  • When we first looked at computer records of the vote in several SC counties, we found thousands of missing/miscounted/uncounted votes.

  • The State Elections Commission adopted new procedures and wrote computer programs similar to those we used in order to improve the accuracy of the reported totals.

  • Errors are still occurring in reporting the vote totals. Although the manufacturer has provided updates to the software, incorrect totals and anomalies are still occurring.
