Press Release Source: AccuPoll Holding Corp. AccuPoll Receives Federal Qualification For Electronic Voting System Friday March 26, 8:00 am ET Company's Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) Voting System Declared Fully Compliant With Stringent Government Requirements TUSTIN, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 26, 2004-- AccuPoll, Inc. (OTCBB:ACUP - News), a developer of Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) voting systems, today announced the federal qualification of its voting system by the National Association of State Election Directors (NASED), the organization that oversees standards established by the Federal Election Commission (FEC). Source: AccuPoll Holding Corp. ยท View multimedia news release As a result of federal qualification, AccuPoll can now deliver its intuitive touch screen-based electronic voting system to counties across the United States for use in this year's and subsequent elections. Additionally, AccuPoll becomes the first company to offer a federally-qualified electronic voting system featuring a Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) capable of being both optically scanned and easily read by voters. "Federal qualification is a time-consuming process conducted by independent testing agencies and a significant barrier that few companies have overcome," said Frank Wiebe, president of AccuPoll. "And of those qualified, we strongly believe that our system best meets the needs of voters, candidates and election officials by providing all of the necessary features to accurately, securely and verifiably register the true intent of the voter." AccuPoll designed their DRE voting system from the outset to feature a VVPAT, which allows voters to verify - via an immediately printed receipt - that their vote was accurately recorded at the time it is cast. As a result, AccuPoll's VVPAT system fully empowers voters to independently ensure that their vote is correct at the time it is cast, allowing for an accurate recount and audit capability should the need arise. Recently, public outcry over non-verifiable, or "paperless," electronic voting systems has encouraged legislators, government leaders and public organizations to call for requiring a VVPAT on all electronic voting machines. Legislation is currently under consideration to amend HAVA in response to this outcry, and if passed will require all electronic voting systems to incorporate a VVPAT into their system. At that time, voting systems without such a feature would need to be re-engineered and resubmitted for federal qualification testing. "Voter confidence is essential to democracy," added Wiebe. "A VVPAT provides that a permanent paper record that is verified by voters is available as an official record in the event of a recount. This feature is critical in ensuring voter confidence when voting electronically." The AccuPoll DRE voting system is fully compliant with the stringent requirements outlined in the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA), the sweeping legislation that outlines the future of voting systems in the United States and earmarks more than $3.9 billion for updating America's voting infrastructure. Each voting station features Braille keypads, audible response, modifiable screen view and multiple language support. An intuitive touch screen user interface guides each voter through the voting process. Voters can confirm their selections both onscreen and via the printed paper Proof of Vote. AccuPoll now plans to aggressively market their federally qualified system to jurisdictions throughout the United States. About AccuPoll Holding Corp. With headquarters in Tustin, AccuPoll (OTCBB:ACUP - News) is the developer of a federally qualified electronic voting system featuring an intuitive touch screen input and a voter verified paper audit trail (VVPAT) that can be confirmed by the voter at the time the ballot is cast, creating a permanent paper audit trail as mandated in the "Help America Vote Act of 2002" (HAVA). AccuPoll has the support of many voters, election officials and special needs advocates in the United States with its innovative approach to recording and counting votes. AccuPoll works with all levels of government to ensure the integrity, security and accuracy of elections. For additional information, visit www.accupoll.com.

I believe that we are only at the cusp of demonstrating our potential to the marketplace. While year-over-year revenues jumped by nearly 80%, revenues derived from direct online and channel partnership efforts also increased sharply on a sequential basis. An expanding product suite penetrating multiple sales verticals, including large, scaleable contracts, bodes well for our 2004 performance and should enable us to continue our trend of strong top-line improvements.
