6. The most likely method is probably the remote login which could
have been built into the machine by the factory.

You are right about "deleted" programs not being deleted. However,there are ways around that also.
The code can be randomly merged into so other nonsense strings of characters,encrypted and then saved as a file, renamed someone inconspicuous and then deleted.

Further, the simplicity of the voter fraud problem would allow the entire code to be embedded in
all sorts of other files, i.e.logos, photographs and plain text.

Basically,the entire idea of trying to have valid elections using computers that are not guarded
at every step from manufacture, delivery, software is totally ludicrous. Those voting machines,if they must be used, need to be secured like the gold at Ft.Knox. Any less security than that is a bad joke. There are ways to make the process safe. No one in gvt/ is currently making any serious attempts to do that.
