160. How about attacks on the vote tallying machines ? That was the Florida and California problem.
This attack requires physical access to the e-voting machine. That is bad news for Far Right areas where the like of a Katherine Harris is breaking laws left and right to elect her Bush.

Still, using network access is far more deadly.

In Ohio in 2004 the Republicans were doing voter fraud in 20 counties. They sabotaged voting machines. They had anti-abortion activists from Iowa and Kentucky inside county voting centers. They got access to machines prior to Election Day. Nothing was done to do V&V (verify and validate) checks on the county-level tallying machines.

Physical attacks on the individual e-voting machines ??? Sure, but that is retail election fraud.

Getting into the tallying machines is where they can move votes by the thousands. And there is no evidence if the machines are not impounded immediately at the end of voting and never turned off.

Elections are war. Get used to it.
