Submission + - Why Voting Machines Still Suck-> 2

snydeq writes: "Deep End's Paul Venezia decries the government's lack of attention to e-voting technology, despite ongoing flaws and clear indications that the government makes 'extremely good use of technology when it suits them — such as spying on their own citizenry or developing missiles that can travel hundreds of miles and hit a shoebox. ... Lapses persist everywhere, from systems that can be compromised by someone with an eighth-grade education and $26 to voting machines that helpfully hack themselves.' Venezia writes. 'Years continue to go by without any sort of controls, regulations, or reliable testing of electronic voting systems that are used by millions of Americans to cast their ballots. State governments have a much firmer grasp on how to interface with car computer systems to fail an inspection if ODB-II error codes are logged than they do with electronic voting.'"
