Nays Have It: Ohio Says No to Voting Machine "Sleepovers"

Nays Have It: Ohio Says No to Voting Machine "Sleepovers"

Click to Read

Nays Have It: Ohio Says No to Voting Machine "Sleepovers" Poll workers will not be allowed to take voting machines home for safekeeping in the days before the November presidential election because the practice known as sleepovers is an unacceptable security risk, the state elections chief said Tuesday. Taking machines home makes it nearly impossible to keep track of what happens to a machine or memory card once it goes into the custody of a poll worker. The changes are meant to address actual security concerns — including the fear that machines could be tampered with.

all the elections i've worked we've had those machines delivered to the polling places the night before by the registrar's office. they also have TONS of straps and stickers and other things that you need 3 witnesses to watch you remove the morning of the election - so there are lots of security precautions. AND.. considering how much they weigh, i'd be relieved as an ohio poll worker!
