Companies to Deploy Thousands of Technicians for Election Support

NOVEMBER 6, 2006 - Posted at 3:24 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The three companies that supply most of the nation's election equipment and ballots will deploy thousands of technicians tomorrow to head off problems that disrupted some primary elections earlier this year.

Delays in some states were caused by missing equipment, programming errors and too few voting machines.

In Arkansas, technical problems stretched the vote-counting process four days past the state's primary election.

Arkansas Secretary of State Charlie Daniels says Elections Systems and Software pledges to have a worker in each of the state's 75 counties.

Daniels says a few counties likely would have problems no matter what.  Daniels says there is usually an unforeseen problem that causes delays.
