An anonymous reader writes: A last minute "experimental" software update affects the tally machines which count 80% of OH's vote, and introduces absurd vulnerabilities into the system: precinct vote tallies in each county will be reformatted by the patch and put on personal thumb drives before submission to the secretary of state. The patch has read/write access to the electronic vote data-base, and hasn't been open to testing or review by any authority. Untested voting software is against Ohio law, but the secretary of state has designated the software "experimental", and so it slips by in a loophole. An injuction was refused this morning.
