writes "On December 17th, Colorado Secretary of State Mike Coffman decertified election equipment used by 64 Colorado counties, including machines made by Premier Election Solutions — formerly known as Diebold Election Systems. A report issued by the Secretary of State's office details a myriad of problems such as systems not being password protected, having controls that could give voters unauthorized access, and not having a way to track or detect security violations.
Manufacturers have 30 days to appeal the decertification."
