Guest Blogged by John Gideon of I always thought that "sleepovers" were beyond the limit of good security. In a court election contest in Wilkinson Co Mississippi the county Circuit Clerk pled the fifth amendment to several questions. One of the questions was "Is it true you had a pre-election party that voting machines were taken to?"

The results of the Ohio study are stunning with regards to the ES&S iVotronic DRE. The study found that a voter or poll worker can easily recalibrate the touch-screen; access control can be defeated by someone with a small magnet and a PDA or cell phone; and there is a back door entry that can be gained bypassing password requirements.

The Colorado SOS is now telling the media that they may be able to use some of the decertified voting systems by patching the software. Patches require testing and certification. Is he getting nervous?...
