Diebold Unwelcome In Vermont
The Vermont House today took one step closer to passing S.2021
, "an act relating to voting machines" which includes this section:
No voting shall occur in any general election which does not use printed ballots.

1 - The committee on Local Government reported in favor of passage, and a third reading has been ordered. The Senate passed it on 2/19/2004.
[Update: the bill passed
[One other note: the law also says: The secretary of state shall provide for the security of voting machines at all times...The secretary of state may conduct a random post election audit of any polling place election results for a primary or general election within 30 days of the election.
