12. response from my Secretary of State
is that LHS, not Diebold, programs our memory cards, and LHS is "trustworthy."

I have asked if our memory cards have executable files on them and have not gotten a response.

My questions to you--

What is the stated purpose of the executable file? Does Diebold explain why it is there?

Is the hack scenario, that someone at Diebold (or LHS) would program something like Hursti did, on to the memory card? Or is that someone at the elections office would grab the memory card and program it?

Can you point to specific security regulations, in HAVA, from the FEC, or otherwise, that may be in direct violation as due to the results of this test? I need hard direct issues to discuss with my SOS.

By the way, although LHS programs our cards, we have the exact same system here in Vermont, 1.94

And our SOS is stonewalling when I ask about it.
