Automark attempts to profit from Help Americans Vote Act

Automark Technology Systems LLC is pushing a Voter Assist Terminal—a ballot machine for people with disabilities.

Automark was founded two and a half years ago by Eugene Cummings, 62, and Joseph Vaneck, 43, both patent attorneys who maintain private practices here, Automark has a lot riding on the machine. The idea for the terminal came from Mr. Cummings, who accompanied an inventor client to a trade show for voting technology in 2002. He was struck by the fact that machines for voters with disabilities were not compatible with existing voting equipment.
