The Kern County Board of Supervisors will meet Tuesday at 9 a.m. to receive a full report on the problems voters experienced in the June 6 primary election from Diebold Elections Systems, Inc. officials and county elections officials.

The company that sold Kern County its $5-million touch-screen voting machines took full responsibility at last week's board meeting.
Diebold representatives told the supervisors that bad voting cards and bad communication caused voters to be turned away from many Kern polls June 6.

“I am happy Diebold stepped up to the plate and admitted their errors, and I look forward to receiving the full report at the next meeting,” said Kern County 1st District Supervisor Jon McQuiston.

The meeting will take place in the board's chambers at 1115 Truxtun Ave. in Bakersfield and will be broadcast on Mediacom Channel 16. Local residents may also participate via the two-way video teleconferencing link at the County Administrative Building at 400 N. China Lake Blvd. Anyone wishing to comment should call McQuiston's Administrative Assistant Craig Peterson at 384-5829.
