Diebold’s Name Game
Diebold Election Systems is no more, having been spun off by its parent company and renamed Premier Election Solutions. The troubled voting machine maker has been plagued by controversy from the start, due to the frequently documented vulnerabilities of its election equipment.
’TIS THE REASON…
After a year and a half of conversely trying to dump their failed voting unit and/or lying to customers about the reliability and security of their voting systems, corporate parent Diebold is giving up the ghost of their election business which, according to an analyst in a Reuters report, was “responsible for less than 10 percent of Diebold’s revenue and 100 percent of its bad publicity.”
According to a company statement just released, Diebold Elections Systems Inc. will become Premier Election Solutions as of [Thursday]. The company president, David Byrd, who has overseen the disastrous election unit for some time, will stay on as president to go down with the ship, apparently.
