Electronic/Paper-Ballot Hybrid Provides Unique Approach to Meet New Federal Requirements

CHICAGO, Dec. 16 2004/PRNewswire/ -- The federal Election Assistance
Commission (EAC) and National Association of State Election Directors (NASED) have approved a new, innovative voting machine that is the first electronic system to meet new federal standards by combining the advantages, flexibility and simplicity of computer-based touch screen voting with the assurances provided by a tangible paper ballot.  By using the best of both approaches, the Populex system is designed to restore voter confidence that their votes will be counted accurately.

In contrast, the Populex voting system was designed from the start with the new regulations, customer demands and people with disabilities in mind.
