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.
