Bush election certified over objections

I am not going to be blogging a lot about US election controversies.
I am more interested in the vulnerabilities of electronic voting systems to both technological and social "hacking".


Democrats allege e-voting problems in Ohio
from News.com January 6, 2005

Congress on Thursday certified President Bush as the winner of the November election, despite efforts by a handful of Democrats to stall the process by protesting alleged electronic voting irregularities in Ohio.

The main point is, electronic voting systems open an election up to a huge variety of challenges. Maybe the software didn't work. Maybe the hardware malfunctioned. And on and on and on.

How many times do paper and pen malfunction?
