The Premier software does not keep track of ballot deletions, according to a recent report by the California secretary of state. The software also records the wrong entry date and time for some ballots and allows audit logs to be deleted.

Such flaws mean that insiders could tamper with election results, then erase their electronic trail.

Is it too much to ask that the same standards used for accounting software be applied to voting machine software? An audit trail that can not be tampered with is crucial to deterring and detecting fraud. I suppose that as Stalin said “it is not the votes that count, but who counts the votes” no longer serves as a warning, but an instruction manual.

Comment by Election Fraud

Thanks for commenting! It seems clear that transparency in elections is a fundamental requirement for functional democracy. I think the more important question is, if we do not have transparent elections, and therefore functional democracy, what should we do about it? Even many of those who understand this lack of democracy continue to act as if writing letters to their Congressmen or marching on DC will accomplish something. What’s the next logical step?
