This doesn’t compute
by Larry Geller
According to an Advertiser breaking news report, one of the electronic voting machines was reprogrammed after the polls were opened and it was found not to be working:
"One of the cords wasn't working," said May Fujii Foo, precinct chairwoman. "It was out for the first two hours. The trouble shooter came to fix it, and to reprogram it. It's working fine now.
Was the machine checked after “reprogramming” to be sure that the approved program was loaded? And what does programming have to do with “one of the cords wasn’t working?” Is there any supervision of the “troubleshooter?”
