Subject: [cryptome] USA Electronic Voting System

There has been some discussion on this mailing list in the past, about
the vulnerability of US Electronic Voting Systems and the various ways
in which they can be manipulated. Now, the Green Party has decided to
challenge the result in three states, and has even raised over 6 million
dollars via crowdfunding. My, how the world changes...!!! May I draw
your attention to an affidavit submitted to the court in the case for
the recount of votes in certain constituencies in the USA...
I personally have always been interested in voting systems, whether it
be the concept of first past the post, or proportional representation.
They all have their flaws, but today, it is not so much about whether
the candidate who wins the election does so on a minority of the votes
cast, but whether the votes of the individual constituents have been
recorded properly and are verifiable. Election software is cheap,
compared with the manual count, but the problem with it is that is so
open to manipulation, from various sources and now countries, such as
Russia, that the whole outcome is now becoming unpredictable.
I am recommending this paper to you because it is fairly simple to read
and very non technical, yet written by someone who knows what he is
talking about...not that I consider the subscribers of this mailing list
to have simple minds....:-).
