Fix the Damn Diebold Programming

Washburn has been on this beat for several years. He has 'cred.'

The Diebold/Premier/Dominion AccuVote OS v1.96.6 infrared scanner erroneously rejected the ballot as over-voted. The chief inspector offered to hit the override button, but doing so would have switched my Democratic vote to Republican and my write-in vote to Republican as well.

The trade-secreted, vender-owned programming/configuration found on the removable memory pack erroneously rejected this ballot and that is illegal.

We have about 18 months to DEMAND that Diebold repair their software. Perhaps the AG should mention 'lawsuit' in his correspondence.
