Last week, my co-worker Matt pointed out that Diebold voting software uses an unprotected spreadsheet to record votes. I almost mentioned it on Plans, but decided not to because I was afraid people would think I was being alarmist. Even though it was true.
Thanks to Chris underwhelm and others for making me realize that we have to talk about this stuff. Here's an article that contains a lot of other good links. Regardless of political persuasion, you've gotta admit that we need secure, verifiable voting. We need to know that we have it.
