The Problem With Electronic Voting Machines
Advertisements [?]
It's clear to me by reading the posts in this forum that you guys are already up on this subject. However, the PBS program 'Need To Know' put together a great segment which you might find useful to pass on to... whomever. Below is a short intro and a link to the 8 minute video clip of the program...

October 29, 2010
On Tuesday, one in six voters will be casting their ballots using touch screen technology. Largely in reaction to the Bush-Gore Florida debacle, Congress passed the Help America Vote Act. It was designed in part to mandate new, up-to-date voting machines that would be safe and reliable.

But heres what you need to know: Ten years and billions of tax dollars later, the way America votes is still something of a mess. Its vulnerable to human error, hardware and software crashes and, yes, bad-guy hackers. We asked Need to Know correspondent Rick Karr to investigate.
