Description

WISH-TV took a look into voting technology changes since the closely contested presidential race of 2000. In 2002, Congress passed and President Bush signed the Help America Vote Act, which, among other things, mandates updating voting equipment by 2006. The federally-funded mandate puts billions of taxpayer dollars into the pockets of a handful of companies that manufacture complicatd technology that few state and local election officials understand. Local election officials today are not so happy with the equipment or their vendors. And they're concerned about the integrity of future elections.
