Those Oh-So-Reliable Voting Machines

(With a hat tip to Michael)

From this source:
An independent lab that tests and certifies voting machines is being suspended by the federal Election Assistance Commission from testing voting systems for failing to conform to procedures and requirements set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).


...SysTest [an independent laboratory which tests voting systems for certification] failed to create and validate test methods, maintain proper documentation of its testing and employ properly trained or qualified personnel.
Read the rest.

How much is our very voting process being undermined?

After all votes are cast by the end of the day on November 4, how many challenges to the results will arise?

Oh, for the day when we had an election and knew the results the next day!
