6. After HAVA was passed in '02
like alot of people, I was obssessed with the EVM's and raising awareness about their ownership and hackability.

However, I only recently heard that the shelf life on the machines was only 10 years.

So next year, it's likely not only that the vote tallies will be hacked but alot of the machines may malfunction due to age alone.

Through in all the voter ID regulations and disenfranchaisement of lower income, younger, and older voters and we've got a very dicey situation.
