AccuPoll Electronic Voting Certified in Louisiana

TUSTIN, Calif.--April 19, 2005--AccuPoll Inc. (OTCBB:ACUP), a developer of Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) voting systems, today announced the receipt of state certification for its voting system in the state of Louisiana. The designation marks yet another state where AccuPoll's electronic voting system featuring a voter verified paper audit trail (VVPAT) is now available. AccuPoll has also been extended an invitation to participate in public demonstrations of certified voting systems across the state April 26-28.

"We appreciate the opportunity the committee gave us to demonstrate how our system fully complies with Louisiana voting standards," said Frank Wiebe, president of AccuPoll. "We look forward to presenting our system to local election officials from across the entire state later this month."

As a result of certification, AccuPoll will be eligible to market their voting system throughout Louisiana and continue participation in the state's RFP process. The state is expecting to receive more than $37 million in federal funds appropriated under the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA), with more than 90 percent of these funds earmarked for the replacement of the state's outdated lever and electronic voting machines.

AccuPoll designed their DRE voting system from the outset to feature a VVPAT, which allows voters to verify - via an immediately printed paper audit trail - that their vote was accurately recorded at the time it is cast. As a result, AccuPoll's VVPAT system fully empowers voters to independently ensure that their vote is correct at the time it is cast, allowing for an accurate recount and audit capability should the need arise.

Earlier this month, AccuPoll announced the completion of federal qualification for their system to the more stringent 2002 Federal Election Committee Voting Standards, which will allow the company to pursue certifications in states that require federal qualification to the more stringent standards.
