Having dumped controversial former chief executive Wally O’Dell in 2005Diebold has now finally dumped its e-voting unit. This was a deeply unpleasant history, and the new buyer Election Systems & Software (ES&S) is far from Ideal.

Unfortunately, ES&S has had its own scandals and appearances of fraud. And at the root of it, there is something unsettling about any kind of electronic voting system that doesn’t leave an immediate paper trail. Whoever owns it and what ever brand name they hide behind, any electronic system should provide multiple paper receipts – immediately. And the voter should probably have to sign each one.
