Last week the Netherlands did away with e-voting and their DREs made by a company called “NEDAP.” These same machines were sold to Ireland under the brand name “Liberty.” “Liberty” is now being marketed in New York. Ireland paid 51.3m Euros to purchase their machines then they found out they were insecure and had many problems. The machines have been in storage since they were purchased. They have never been used. Instead of taking NEDAP to court for restitution, or scrapping the machines; the Irish have now decided to take out 25-year rental leases for storage facilities. The government has taken a lease for the 288 machines in storage in County Monaghan for over 27,000 Euros a year.
