NIST Condemns Paperless Voting

“Paperless electronic voting machines ‘cannot be made secure‘ [pdf] according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). In the most sweeping condemnation of voting machines issued by any federal agency, NIST echoes what critics have been saying all along, that due to the lack of verifiability, ‘a single programmer could rig a major election.’ Rather than adding printers, though, NIST endorses the hand-marked optical-scan system as the most reliable.”

Golly gee whiz.

Like no one’s been SCREAMING that for YEARS. Nice to see the kids at NIST weigh in on this. Hopefully now all the naysayers will WTF up.
