Diebold Viewed as Technology Builder in Ohio
The October 15 issue of the Akron Beacon Journal chronicled Gov. Bob Taft's recent visit to Diebold headquarters in North Canton, Ohio. The article discusses Ohio's position in the United States as a technology builder in comparison to other states. Kevin Newton, vice president of Global Design, is quoted in the article as saying technology workers like to know they are moving into a region with several employers with challenging job possibilities - and it's important for Ohio to be able to support that in order to succeed.

More Diebold Election Systems in the News
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution featured an article in its October 13 edition which focuses on blind and visually impaired voters in Georgia being delighted by DES' voting equipment -- enabling them to cast their ballot in privacy for the very first time. The AJC also featured two articles in its October 17 edition outlining the training and preparation process of two counties in advance of the November 5 election.

Also, the October 14 edition of the San Francisco Chronicle ran an article on Alameda county's preparation for the upcoming November 5 election using DES' touch-screen voting terminals.

Following Diebold Stock: What Happened Last Week

Shares of Diebold (DBD) turned in their second straight weekly gain along with a more positive sentiment in the overall markets.  Volume was very light early in the week.  Tuesday saw DBD open on a $0.50 uptick from the previous day's close and shoot higher by nearly $1.00 in the morning; however, volume remained light.  On Wednesday, overall markets turned lower and passed along their technical rebound to DBD, which lost nearly $1.00 in the first half hour's trading.  Positive sentiment caused by economic indicators including housing starts and industrial production bounced consumer-related stock higher again on Thursday.  On Friday, DBD closed up $0.31 on high volume.
