Most states rely on national certification/qualification of voting systems. They tend to tout the fact that voting systems have been inspected and tested by some Independent Test Authority, though they ignore the fact that the tests are bought and paid for by the vendors. Then they point with steadfastness to the National Association of State Elections Directors (NASED) who reviews the ITA findings and gives a voting system its final 'stamp of approval'. Now we learn that the people applying that 'stamp of approval' are not even qualified to put ink on the stamp, let alone review the paperwork and give their approval. Imagine how the states will feel about this information. On the other hand, don't waste your time because the truth is inconvenient so they will just ignore it....
