Court Orders DREs Can Be Sold in NY

There has been a fierce battle going on in New York State about voting machines. We thought it was settled but apparently it isn't.

It seemed inconceivable that the New York State Supreme Court would overrule the decision of the Board of Elections and allow LibertyVote’s DRE to be purchased by New York counties. But on Monday, 2/4/8, that is exactly what happened, astonishing legal experts and frustrating advocates who thought we’d finally prevailed over the DRE threat. The flawed ruling now sets yet another legal precedent that the right of voting machine vendors to turn a profit supersedes that of voters to demand that the equipment we spend our tax dollars on be up to the job.

This has been a knock down drag out battle. I wonder where that judge's interests lie? Certainly not in allowing New Yorker's votes to count.
