11/08/2003 Entry: "Black Box Voting in Fairfax County"

"School Board member Rita S. Thompson (R), who lost a close race to retain her at-large seat, said yesterday that the new computers might have taken votes from her. Voters in three precincts reported that when they attempted to vote for her, the machines initially displayed an 'x' next to her name but then, after a few seconds, the 'x' disappeared.

"In response to Thompson's complaints, county officials tested one of the machines in question yesterday and discovered that it seemed to subtract a vote for Thompson in about 'one out of a hundred tries,' said Margaret K. Luca, secretary of the county Board of Elections."

*snip*

"Meanwhile, attorneys for local Republicans and GOP candidate Mychele B. Brickner, who lost her bid to chair the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, went before a Circuit Court judge yesterday morning, asking him to keep 10 voting machines under lock and key and not to include their tabulations in the results. The machines, from nine precincts scattered across the county, broke down about midday Tuesday and were brought to the county government center for repairs and then returned to the polls -- a violation of election law, Republicans argued."

Hey, things are looking up! If this can happen to Republicans, there's a chance the e-voting issues will actually be addressed. Yay!
