Ireland ponders how to dispose of its voting machines

Ireland jumped into the electronic voting arena, acquiring 52 million euros worth of equipment... and then determined the risk of using them was too high. So now they're stuck.

Eight years after they were acquired for €52m, the government wants to return 7,500 barely used electronic voting machines to their manufacturer.

John Gormley, the environment minister, announced last March that he had set up an inter-departmental taskforce to deal with the disposal of the machines, after deciding they would never be used to count votes in an Irish election.
