Sequoia Systems, a maker of voting machines, is thrashing around wildly in an effort to prevent criticism. The latest? a letter threatening a lawsuit if their system is evaluated.
Evidently, they want it evaluated only under their control. They were spanked by the feds for this sort of thing before
, but managed to calm down
To be fair, I suppose, they are probably fearful of another report like that done in California
, which indicated that their security, both software and physical, could be compromised fairly quickly -- and that was without the time to analyze that would ensue after downloading their master system files from public servers it didn't belong on
. For those who want simpler methods of voting circumvention, google handily turns up specific, easy recipes for monkeying with the vote
(though in that particular case, Sequoia insists it's not a bug, but a feature).
