AccuPoll Demonstrates Unprecedented Scalability in Successful Election for UAW Local 148

Tustin, CA – May 27, 2005 – AccuPoll, Inc. (OCTBB: ACUP), a developer of Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) voting systems, today announced the successful completion of this week’s runoff election selecting leaders for the United Auto Workers Local 148 (Long Beach). More than 1,600 UAW members cast their ballot on 50 AccuPoll voting units over the course of the day, demonstrating unprecedented scalability for one location.

"Yesterday’s election was significant because it demonstrates how robust the AccuPoll electronic voting system can be," said Frank Wiebe, president of AccuPoll. "With more than 1,600 members casting their ballots at just one location, we were able to demonstrate that our system can handle a heavy single-day voter turnout. This is extremely important for election officials who are interested in consolidated and early voting options."

Competing systems typically allow for fewer than one dozen voting machines per location unless additional control units are included. These additional units, which are highly expensive, add complexity for election officials and increase the time required for ballot tallying. AccuPoll’s system, however, provides election officials the opportunity to add many times more machines to the polling location without such additional control units.

"The AccuPoll machines helped us run a very smooth election with hardly any lines whatsoever," said Maureen Collie, Chair of Permanent Election Committee, UAW Local 148. "Our voters were able to cast their ballots quickly and the election results were ready shortly after the polls closed."

AccuPoll designed their federally-qualified DRE voting system from the outset to feature a voter verified paper audit trail (VVPAT) and fully comply with the stringent requirements outlined in the "Help America Vote Act of 2002" (HAVA), the sweeping legislation that outlines the future of voting systems in the United States and earmarks more than $3.9 billion for updating America’s voting infrastructure. The company is the only vendor of an electronic voting system with an incorporated VVPAT that has been certified to the more stringent 2002 FEC Voting System Standards.
