Hacking Democracy on Google Video

Someone seems to have uploaded this important movie. See it before HBO pulls it off. Hacking Democracy includes a demonstration of how a Diebold machine was hacked without even touching it.

In Hawaii they use ESS Model 100 readers. There is a paper ballot that can be manually recounted. That is, if someone suspects the machine count is wrong. How are the votes counted electronically? What goes on in the back rooms? Can our system be hacked?

The new Hart machines certainly present that possibility. We should be as vigilant as anyone to assure the integrity of our basic democratic right to have our vote counted.

Requiring those Captcha codes at least temporarily, in the hopes that it quells the flood of comment spam I've been receiving.
