Another voting system has been hacked and the hackers claim they could even change the software to a chess game. Liberty Systems, which is being marketed in the North East including heavily in New York, was hacked by a team of Dutch IT professionals. / Cook Co, Illinois elections staff admit to the County Board that there will probably be problems in Nov. and testing of their Sequoia equipment certainly reveals there will be problems. One elections manager told the Board that it takes 3 or 4 elections before there are no longer any problems. / Suffolk Co. New York officials are suing to keep their lever machines. / Maryland will use the e-poll books even though it took three software patches and the inclusion of a mouse, none of which have been certified federally.
