Diebold Turns Dominion


A Dominion ImageCast precinct-count optical-scan voting machine, mounted on a collapsible ballot box made by ElectionSource.

Dominion was founded in 2002 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, by John Poulos and James Hoover.[7]


In May 2010, Dominion acquired Premier Election Solutions (formerly Diebold Election Systems) from Election Systems & Software (ES&S). ES&S had just acquired PES from Diebold and was required to sell off PES by the United States Department of Justice for anti-trust concerns.[8] In June 2010, Dominion acquired Sequoia Voting Systems.[9]


Poulos, President and CEO of Dominion, has a BS in electrical engineering from the University of Toronto and an MBA from INSEAD.[10] Hoover, Vice President, has an MS in mechanical engineering from the University of Alberta.[11]
