Those counties are Humboldt, Marin, Placer, San Luis Obispo, Trinity, Tulare and Santa Barbara counties. Butte County was added to the San Francisco County suit, filed last month by Voter Action. The suit also names California, which this year approved the use of the disputed voting machine - the AccuVote-TSX, built by Diebold Election Systems, based in Allen, Texas.
For Immediate Release:
The suit, put together by the voting rights group Voter Action, asks a San Francisco Superior Court to nullify February's conditional certification of Diebold Election System's AccuVote-TSx electronic voting system and ban the purchase or use of the system for the November statewide election.
The suit, filed in Superior Court in San Francisco, is the latest salvo in an ongoing dispute about the security of Diebold electronic voting machines, focused on Diebold's TSX touch-screen system.
