Seiko Instruments Micro Printer Division has teamed with the country's leading voting machine manufacturers to deploy high-tech systems nationwide that accurately tabulate votes, eliminate ballot tallying disputes, and provide hard-copy verification of results for both candidates and election officials.
For starters, on January 10, 2004, the Washington Post cited a Republican committee report to the effect that, in the November 2003 elections, voting machines in Fairfax County, Virginia, were a "failure," producing one of the slowest vote counts in history, despite manufacturer assurance that the speed of ballot tallying would be vastly accelerated.
Vendors of such systems typically promise lower election costs, greater speed in tallying votes, and improved accuracy.
