Princeton University researchers demonstrate how a Diebold machine can be compromised in under one minute to silently and undetectably steal an election.

This isn’t – or at least shouldn’t be – a partisan issue. Democracy relies on the integrity of elections. Technology can be used to make elections less vulnerable to fraud, but Diebold’s approach clearly isn’t how to achieve that goal. There is an alternative; one whose code is open for public review, and generates a voter-verifiable, auditable paper trail.
