- Marvalene Pankey, "Electronic (Mechanical) Vote Tabulation: Part Two---Why Some People Do Not Vote and How to Break the Cycle", 1999: "Voters perception of the lack of integrity in the counting of votes has been repeatedly influenced by articles such as one which ran in New Yorker 1988 by Ronnie Duggar, reporting Shouptronic Company was accusing Business Records Corporation (earlier known as Cronus) of having a monopoly on the counting of votes in the USA. Collier's book VOTESCAM also refers to Cronus as being a major problem for vote fraud. Interestingly Shouptronic applied for approval in Missouri in October, 1982, and May 19, 1983, they were sent an outline of procedures for certification. In the records I reviewed at the secretary of state's office, 1997, their record then appears to stop. On the other hand Business Records Corporation incorporated in Mo. November 4, 1988, was dissolved for failure to pay franchise taxes, August 12, 1994. BRC continued to be used for vote tabulation for the 1994 election and was then reinstated to do business, October 10, 1995. In 1998 Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. of Dallas became the majority share holder of BRC Holdings, Inc. and in 1999 the sole share holder. In 1997 ACS merged with CDSI, which was granted the technology contract for all the U.S. Courts in 1996, in addition to contracts with the U.S. General Service Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Communications Commission, and Argentina Lottery. November 27, 1997, American Information Systems, Inc. acquired BRC Holdings, Inc. of Dallas and Sequoia Pacific Systems to form Election Systems and Software, Inc. of Omaha, Nebraska. ACS thus is actually the primary shareholder of ESS, Inc. In 1998 ACS was awarded contracts with the U.S. Postal Service, U.S. Senate, U.S. President, U.S. Vice President, FDIC, U.S. Air Force, and U.S. Naval Reserve"
