Ventura resolves faulty election machine

VENTURA

According to the Ventura County Star, a New Jersey company will replace the $114,000 machine with new technology at no cost to taxpayers.

The dispute arose in 2010 after the machine cut into the sides of thousands of absentee ballots. They became unreadable and forced officials to count the ballots by hand, which cost more than $21,000.

The county clerk said he would have considered legal action if an agreement wasn't reached.
