215. I don't think you understand the problem...
There is no need to change 100% of the votes. (Not that anybody would likely notice even if you did.)

There is no need to "simulate" anything. If you bother reading the original article at Salon, or watching the video, after the voter has approved all votes on the confirmation screen, etc., when they hit "Cast Vote", the screen blanks for a split second, votes are changed and registered into the system as the "Cast Vote" button is ascended.

But, by all means, downplay the concerns about the, oh, dozen or so different ways we've now shown that these systems can be be manipulated.

Oh, and, btw, I interviewed Roger Johnston of Argonne Labs today on my KPFK show and he says that the same thing can be done with op-scan systems as well as touch screens. Interview can be heard here:

So, HEA'!!!
