Florida: if you don't like the test results, stop doing the tests
AP reports: Florida elections supervisors opposed a state proposal Monday that would require them to get approval before testing voting equipment.
The issue, in part, resulted from a secret test several months ago when elections-office workers hacked into a Diebold optical-scan voting system in Leon County to show that it could be made to produce false results.
"The action by the Division of Elections to limit how I can do these tests, I find an imposition on my statutory authority," said Ion Sancho, the Leon County supervisor who questioned the secretary of state's standing to make a rule change without legislative approval.
Maria Matthews, the assistant general counsel for the Division of Elections, which hosted the 90-minute workshop, said the state was comfortable it had the authority to go ahead with the rule changes. -- Elections chiefs don't like rules - Orlando Sentinel : State News Elections chiefs don't like rules - Orlando Sentinel : State News
