Everyone should read comp.risks (chapter 2)

[West Palm Beach, FL, Supervisor of Elections Theresa LePore] says most of the information the plaintiffs are seeking is filed with the state Division of Elections in Tallahassee and even if it were available, she couldn't provide it because it includes trade secrets of Sequoia Voting Systems Inc., which manufactures the machines.

"I'm not willing to let anyone take a machine and take it apart," LePore said. "I don't think the taxpayers would appreciate them taking apart a $3,500 machine and voiding the warranty."

Also, always good to have voting equipment with sekrits in the programming.

Thanks -- he seems appropriate for stuff like this.

The Nevada Gaming Commission employees it's own programmers and analysts.

No gaming is issued a licence for use unless the company manufactuarring it turn over a production model and ALL source code to the NGC for review and analyses.

Why shouldn't the same thing happen to voting machines.

$3500 out of $14 million for a single destructive test. Sounds good to me.

No kidding. Very instructive, that as soon as money is involved, the government insists on knowing it's getting its fair share, but if it's sekrit voting software, hey, the citizens don't have to know about that, do they?
