05/03/2004 Archived Entry: "Dominoes fall on touch-screen voting machines"

AT LEAST THERE'S A LITTLE GOOD NEWS on touch-screen voting machines. The much-publicized word that California is decertifying the insecure beasties and starting a criminal probe into the actions of Diebold and ES&S is just one of many, many dominoes that are falling worldwide.

But sheesh, I had no idea this whole "trust us" voting scam was basically the work of two brothers.

Voters can run, but they can't hide from these guys. Meet the Urosevich brothers, Bob and Todd. Their respective companies, Diebold and ES&S, will count (using both computerized ballot scanners and touchscreen
machines) about 80 percent of all votes cast in the upcoming U.S. presidential election.

Both ES&S and Diebold have been caught installing uncertified software in their machines. Although there is no known certification process that will protect against vote rigging or technical failure, it is a requirement of most, if not all, states.
