Diebold Democracy

I have a friend who always refers to these new voting machines as "slot machines." However, my guess is that slot machines are substantially more secure than voting machines. Casinos protect and monitor their slot machines constantly. Voting machines are just kinda there.

In this extremely disturbing video, Princeton computer scientists demonstrate how, in less than 1 minute, they can introduce software that:

(a) makes the machine appear to work when tested
(b) steals the actually election
(c) removes all evidence it was there after the election
(d) can spread from machine to machine

I think it may be time to spend the money and have the patience to let humans conduct elections.

that's totally freaky. i'm with you, bro.
