SC orders more touch-screen voting machines

(Columbia-AP) Nov. 27, 2004 - New touch-screen voting machines are expected to be shipped next month to the state's remaining 31 counties.

State Election Commission Director Marci Andino said she was satisfied with their performance in 15 counties during the general election earlier this month. She says the few voting problems that occurred have allowed her to feel vindicated.

She was accused of steering a $37 million contract to Election Systems and Software, a Nebraska-based firm that Andino had been loosely connected to years before.

The allegations drew fire from state voter activists, who feared the machines would lead to mass voter fraud and perhaps even a stolen election.

But investigations into Andino uncovered no wrongdoing, and the touch-screen machines, with few exceptions, operated as designed.
