The fact that some individuals still have any level of faith left in Diebold
is quite baffling, but in case you were looking for just one more
episode to dash your hopes
of a hack-proof voting machine
, open wide. As fate would have it, a fresh study in Florida
has found that even optical scan voting systems "can be hacked into," which is causing quite a bit of concern considering that touchscreen alternatives aren't exactly an option
in the Sunshine State. Reportedly, the document noted that "official memory cards in the optical scan machines could easily be exchanged with ones altering the vote count," and it was also stated that Diebold must "deal with the flaws" by August 17th. Yeah, we're sure it's all over that.
