Retesting vote machines gets a 'nay'
State turns down Northampton County residents' request.

By Paul Muschick
Of The Morning Call

The state has refused to reconsider its certification of electronic voting machines that Northampton County has ordered.

Eleven voters, led by Alan Brau, a physician from Hanover Township, asked the Pennsylvania Department of State this month to re-examine WINvote machines made by Advanced Voting Solutions of Frisco, Texas.

The voters asked for a test by independent computer experts, not affiliated with the government or machine manufacturer, to determine if the system could be hacked into. They fear an election could be rigged by hackers.

In a letter to Brau this week, Commonwealth Secretary Pedro Cortes said the WINvote system has passed a 17-point state inspection, as well as a federal inspection.

2. This is why we are done
Even here, an amazing number of people
believe their vote will count.
"Fooled Again" tells the story of
how we have been cheated out of our vote.
Almost NONE of the repuke strategems identified
in the book have been fixed. Until that is done we ain't winning
nothing they don't let us win.

3. Every single one of 30 or more "certifications" missed the Hursti hack
or hole/capability. Asking for retesting is fine, but by incompetent "authorities"?
