Also that year, McMillan showed up in Georgia on behalf of the infamous Diebold Election Systems company and invoked the Peach State's Trade Secret Exemption to the open record law.

Ohio is the home of Diebold Election Systems, a major purveyor of touchscreen voting machines that, unlike the ATMs the company also manufactures, have no paper trail.
Of the top five companies in the field--Election Systems and Software (ES&S) of Nebraska, Diebold Election Systems of Texas, Sequoia Voting Systems of California, Hart InterCivic of Texas, and Danaher Corporation of Illinois--at least two have strong partisan ties.
Altogether, nearly 100 million votes will be counted in computers provided and programmed by ES&S and three other private corporations: British-owned Sequoia Voting Systems of Oakland, California, whose touch-screen voting equipment was rejected as insecure against fraud by New York City in the 1990s; the Republican-identified company Diebold Election Systems of McKinney, Texas, whose machines malfunctioned this year in a California election; and Hart InterCivic of Austin, one of whose principal investors is Tom Hicks, who helped make George W.
However, in early 2003, some election-reform activists discovered (23) an open website containing large numbers of files relating to voting systems of Diebold Election Systems, a major voting system vendor which had recently won contracts with Georgia and Maryland to provide touchscreen DREs.
