The saga of Jim March and evoting in San Diego

August 6th, 2005 | by Andrew Ó Baoill |

One of the stranger electronic voting items I’ve encountered in recent days was the story of the charges filed against activist Jim March (of Black Box Voting) in San Diego:

Jim March, a member of the Black Box Voting board of directors, was arrested Tuesday evening for trying to observe the Diebold central tabulator (vote tallying machine) as the votes were being counted in San Diego’s mayoral election (July 26).

According to a new post on the site the charges have now been withdrawn, but with an option for them to be refiled, which March is interpreting as an attempt to intimidate him and dissuade him from filing a suit for damages.
