112. Of course... you're right.

The point of the OP shows ANOTHER vulnerability of the technology.

This implementation of technology was inspired by the amount of money distributed by HAVA, the mandate accompanied by it, and slick salesman who sold proprietary systems on a promise. When in fact it was just the HAVA dollars they wanted... and they got it plus obscenely sizable maintenance contracts.

This equipment has high failure ratios 12 to 15 percent, partly due to the fact that they are shunted around between storage and the precincts, and I'd guess, partly because they were engineered on the cheap. There is plenty of opportunity for nefarious types to have access regardless of the type of hack.

Get rid of the equipment get rid of the doubt.
