TUSTIN, CA -- March 21, 2005 -- AccuPoll, Inc. (OTCBB:ACUP - News), a developer of Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) voting systems today announced the successful completion of Saturday's endorsement election for the Democratic Committee of Westmoreland County.

AccuPoll conducted the election alongside reseller Unisys Corporation (NYSE:UIS - News), which provides election services, training and support for AccuPoll's system throughout Pennsylvania.

"The AccuPoll voting system was very well received by our voters," said Rosemary Trump, Westmoreland County Democratic Committee Chairperson. "They found it very easy to use and were reassured by the paper audit trail. We were especially pleased with how quickly the results were ready after the polls were closed."

Members of the Democratic Party cast their ballot electronically using AccuPoll's intuitive touch-screen interface and were able to personally review a printed paper audit trail indicating their selections. The audit trail was then inserted into a ballot box, becoming part of the official record for recounting and verification.

"There were a lot of different variables for this event that could have changed at the very last minute and we were prepared with three entirely different elections," said Frank Wiebe, president of AccuPoll. "This saved the Committee an enormous amount of money by avoiding preprinting ballots that may not have even been used."

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 "HelpAmerica Vote Act of 2002" (HAVA), a key piece of legislation that outlines the requirements for the voting systems infrastructure of the future. The company is one of the few vendors of an electronic voting system that has incorporated a VVPAT into their federally-qualified system.
