Company acknowledges Ohio voting machine error

The maker of the most widely used touch-screen voting machine in Ohio has acknowledged the machines have a programming error that led to about 1,000 votes being dropped briefly in the March primary.
Premier Election Solutions Inc. notified Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner (BROO'-nur) in a letter this week.
The company said the programming error led to votes being dropped in nine of the 44 counties that used the company's machines in the March election. The company previously argued that the problems were caused by antivirus software complications.
State officials say the dropped votes were discovered by election workers within several hours and added to overall vote totals.
The same machines will be used in the November election. Brunner spokesman Kevin Kidder says the state will instruct election workers how to load memory cards to a server and verify that all votes are counted. The state also plans to cross-check vote totals with paper trails.
