Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org Michael Shamos is a professor at Carnegie Mellon University, the Pennsylvania state voting machine examiner, and a proponent of paperless voting systems. He is also the man who offered a reward to anyone who could hack a voting machine. In late April the university held student-body elections but all 1,933 votes are inaccessible because someone, either on purpose or by accident depending on who is being asked, tampered "with the electronic key used to encrypt and decrypt the results." Professor Shamos had this to say, "It doesn't say anything about electronic voting systems in general, except that amateurs shouldn't build them." We agree totally. Amateurs like Diebold, Sequoia, ES&S, Hart Intercivic, Danaher, Liberty, Dominion, Advanced Voting Solutions, MicroVote, and the rest shouldn't build our voting systems....
