Those voting machines long ago that had unencrypted spreadsheets on an 
easily-accessed compact flash slot could have run 100% free/open source 
software. That alone did not guarantee security. It wouldn't take a 
sophisticated user to mount the drive and adjust the results. Gotta 
wonder if that was by design.

I'm pretty happy with paper by mail. Would take a sing orchestrated 
attack which would be easier to detect by a whistle blower.

Shame this is an issue.
