Electronic Vote Tampering?

New Zealand’s Scoop has a series of stories on how insecure and easily manipulated the electronic U.S. election process is, through the use of the dominant Diebold voting ballots. While one story deals explicitly with the ease that a potential fraud could be perpetrated (with pictures and very easy to understand), another article on the same topic deals more with the implications of the security and lack-thereof throughout the Diebold company and their voting software. Scoop contends that, if applied, this electoral scandal could be “bigger than Watergate”.

Ongoing information and sources can be found at Black Box Voting, the website that investigated this security problem.
