One interesting 1-page doc mentioned on that site is the following:
It is the Feb-2004 press release from the Calif. State Govt. which:
- notes that Diebold installed untested software on
some of their voting machines in four different counties
- says last year California directed that all
machines have a paper VVAT capability
- and says that while such capability is being developed
a number of interim measures are required including
state testing of (randomly selected) voting machines in each county
