Common Cause has come out swinging with a new report.

The report, Malfunction and Malfeasance: A Report on the Electronic Voting Machine Debacle, finds that 17 states, including critical swing states such as Pennsylvania, are at “high” risk of having election results compromised due to problems with voting machines known as DREs. States designated as high risk because they use DREs with no paper backup are: Arkansas, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

You can see the report here (via beSpacific).

And if you haven’t watched the video of Clinton Curtis testifying on hacking voting machines, it’s interesting. .

I personally am a big believer in the promise of electronic voting.  We have it here and it’s light years better than the old chad-ridden system.  However, we need to seriously look at security issues with these systems…
