mamer-retrogamer writes: On December 17th, Colorado Secretary of State Mike Coffman decertified election equipment used by 64 Colorado counties, including machines made by Premier Election Solutions — formerly known as Diebold Election Systems.

Manufacturers have 30 days to appeal the decertification.
