TUSTIN, Calif.--July 6, 2005--AccuPoll, Inc. (OTCBB:ACUP - News), a developer of Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) voting systems, today announced the receipt of certification for its voting system in the State of Texas. As a result the company becomes the only vendor certified by the Texas Secretary of State to provide an electronic voting system featuring a voter verified paper audit trail (VVPAT) that has been qualified under the more stringent 2002 FEC Voting System Standards.

"This is a major accomplishment for us," said Dennis Vadura, Chairman/CTO of AccuPoll. "With this state certification in hand, AccuPoll is now qualified to sell its voting system to the State's 254 counties. Last year, the State of Texas received about $81 million dollars in HAVA funds. Texas is eligible for an additional $103 million dollars in federal HAVA funding. Most of the second round of funding is earmarked directly for the counties to assist them in acquiring accessible voting equipment by the federal deadline of January 1, 2006. We are working closely with those counties that want to use those funds to procure a voting system that has a VVPAT and is qualified under the 2002 FEC Voting System Standards."

AccuPoll designed their electronic voting system to feature a voter verified paper audit trail (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.
