Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org A few years ago the government of Ireland purchased Liberty voting machines, the same machines that are being marketed, unsuccessfully so far, in New York and other eastern states. After receiving the machines from the vendor Irish computer scientists found that the machines were not secure. Unlike in the US where we continue to use DREs that are insecure, the Irish government put the machines into warehouses. So far the Irish tax-payer has spent 51 million euros for this scheme. Some local jurisdictions have purchased leases of up to 25 years for storage of machines and now the government wants to bring all of the machines in the country together into an unused aerodrome for storage. This means buying out leases and no one knows yet how much all of this is going to cost....
