California has banned the use of touch-screen voting machines in a handful of counties until security concerns are satisfied, possibly until after the presidential election this fall.
Secretary of State Kevin Shelley issued the order revoking the systems' certification Friday after weeks of discussion, including a recent recommendation by the California Voting Systems and Procedures Panel. That evaluation expressed concern about what the panel called "disenfranchisement" of voters who were unable to vote using the touch-screen system in the March primary because of technical problems.
