Voting Details Go Online says The Columbus Disgrace.........
Anyone, anywhere will be able to count votes cast in Franklin County this fall under a plan by local officials to counter public distrust of new elections technology.

After the official counts and canvasses for the Nov. 7 election, information from more than 4,500 touch-screen voting machines will be posted online so skeptics can conduct their own reviews, Franklin County Board of Elections Director Matthew Damschroder said.

1. If they don't post the software code, then this is meaningless
the final tallies will be what ever the software is programmed to spit out.

2. Not being computer wise I wondered where the hitch was
They are betting on Joe Six Pac's ignorance regarding computers and thinking their deception will work like it has before. Australia has open code and there is no damn reason why the US can't do the same except it probably put a monkey wrench to the powers hold on the Joe Six Pacs.

3. They have no reason to cheat in a primary, a clean primary is just
a smoke screen

Good to know Damshroeder's mom doesn't trust him.
