Walden O'Dell has resigned as CEO of Diebold, one of the major players in the electronic voting market. Mr. O'Dell is famous for a 2003 letter saying he would help "Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president". As it turned out, Ohio was a pivotal state in the following year's elections, and was one of several states with many voting abnormalities.

Mr. O'Dell is resigning for unstated "personal reasons". The business markets are reportedly reacting favorably to the resignation.

Diebold voting machines continue to cause great concern over reported problems in their system.
