Not Exactly ‘AccuVote’: Diebold Machine Removed in Colo.
Posted on Oct 30, 2008
A Diebold voting machine with the ironic name of “AccuVote” was impounded after a voter in Colorado’s Adams County noticed that the machine wouldn’t take a vote for a Democratic state Senate candidate. Luckily, the ever-vigilant Brad Blog is on the case.

A county clerk in Colorado has finally done the right thing for the voters by removing a touch-screen voting machine from service, and quarantining it, after it was discovered to be flipping votes from one candidate to another. The failed machine in this case was a Diebold Accu-Vote, a frequent flipper.
