E-Voting – Proposed Strategies for Safeguarding the Electoral Process
The president of Diebold Election Systems pledged Wednesday to fix multiple problems plaguing its oldest touchscreen-voting customer on the West Coast.
Officials in Alameda County, purchaser of a $12.7 million Diebold electronic-voting system in May 2002, reserved judgment on whether the McKinney, Texas, firm is capable of delivering on its promises.
Ok Diebold, here's the thing. The vote only happens once. The machines must have no problems to start with.
Wyle Laboratories and Ciber Inc.
And what are their qualifications?
As far as I know, they have none. They're just a couple guys who one day decided "hey, I think I will certify electronic voting machines".
Yes, that's the sort of top-quality, rigorous process that keeps America's voting system safe.
