Fixing the machines

It looks as though San Francisco, and other California counties, will get some restitution for the problems caused by uncertified voting machines this year. Secretary of State Debra Bowen is suing the manufacturer of the machines for damages. If the case is successful, the city stands to get more than two million dollars from the fines paid by the company. This may not make up for the long delay in getting final returns from the November election because of the need to hand count the votes, but it will give John Arntz and the staff of the Dept. of Elections some satisfaction after all their long hours they had to put in during those post-election days.
