E-Vote: Alabama Reports No Significant Problems With New Voting System



February 7, 2008 By

Voting during Alabama's Super Tuesday primaries went smoothly and efficiently all across the state, according to a release for the Governor's Office, as Alabama's new voter registration system got its first real-life test.

Governor Bob Riley, who, as Special Master, was put in charge of making the state compliant with the federal Help America Vote Act by U.S. Federal Judge Keith Watkins, said the lack of significant problems -- even in the wake of Tuesday's record voter turnout -- shows the new system works very well. No county reported significant system problems and most problems that were reported were not related to the new voter registration system.

"A lot of people worked hard to bring Alabama into compliance and I want to thank them for their efforts, including members of our HAVA Implementation Committee, Secretary of State Beth Chapman and her staff, probate judges and their staffs, and all our registrars and circuit clerks in all 67 counties of Alabama," said Riley.
