How secure are our nations voting machines?

Filed under: Information — Tags: ,

Not very it turns out. The Brennan Center Task Force on Voting System Security, an initiative of the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, recently released a report and policy proposals concluding that all three of the nation?s most commonly purchased electronic voting systems are vulnerable to software attacks that could threaten the integrity of a state or national election.

There are also some fairly simple, common sense recommendations on how to fix these machines, such as random audits of paper records and a ban on wireless systems which currently can be compromised by something as simple as a PDA.

I encourage everyone in the US to contact all of their representatives and help get this problem fixed right away.
