NH: “First in the nation”  (with corporate controlled secret vote counting) By Nancy Tobi 07 Jan 2008 81% of New Hampshire ballots are counted in secret by a private corporation named Diebold Election Systems (now known as “Premier”). The elections run on these machines are programmed by one company, LHS Associates, based in Methuen, MA. We know nothing about the people programming these machines, and we know even less about LHS Associates. We know even less about the secret vote counting software used to tabulate 81% of our ballots.

New Hampshire Primary – ALL Diebold, ALL the Time  By Michael Collins 08 Jan 2008 It’s been nearly eight years since the debacle of Florida and nearly six since the miracle Chambliss win  against Cleland. Surely we have reliable, verifiable voting systems in place? It’s been almost four years since the nationwide disaster  of the 2004 election  with irregularities  still emerging. Hasn’t all this been fixed? You’d think so. But, the answer is definitely no. Votes are still taken by voting machines produced by vendors highly sympathetic  to the Republican Party. The machines are still off limits to those who want to examine how they operate and observe real vote counting.
