In November 2004 Associated Press reported that a UniLect Computer may have lost 4,500 North Caroline votes in the last election in a single county. The report indicated that while UniLect representatives had told them that each storage unit could handle 10,500 votes local officials said it was in fact only 3,005 votes.
The President of UniLect Corporation is Jack Gerbel, who has been actively involved in the election equipment industry since 1965. His career began in elections with IBM Corporation and then as a founder, Vice-President and Board of Directors member of Computer Election Systems (CES).
Mr. Gerbel had the distinction of personally selling and installing more election systems than any other person in the U.S.
Two major accounts that he sold and successfully installed were Cook County, Illinois and the City of Chicago.
Mr. Gerbel became Vice-President of Sales for Business Records Corporation (BRC).
