Why electronic voting is a bad idea
"Specifically the flaw was that you can get at the central
vote-counting database through Microsoft Access. They have the
security disabled. And when you get in that way, you are able to
overwrite the audit log, which is supposed to log the transactions,
and this [audit log] is one of the key things they cite as a security
measure when they sell the system."
They suspect the security flaws could have been used to cause some
upset victories in Georgia in 2002.
