OH's SoS Brunner Looks Beyond E-Voting Nightmares
Exclusive: OH's SoS Brunner Looks Beyond
Todays E-Voting Nightmares
Previously Unpublished Q&A Exchanges on Ohio's Diebold Lawsuit, E-Voting Nightmares, and the Possibility of Hand-Counting Ballots in the Future...
A week or two ago, AlterNet ran my recent detailed Q&A with Ohio Sec. of State Jennifer Brunner, on a wide variety of issues related to the upcoming election.
There were a few more technical/geek-ish items that I didn't include in the version that ran over there, thinking they were more appropriate for the real tech and election integrity geeks (like me) out there. Those issues are now published in a much shorter Q&A running today at ComputerWorld.
In these previously unpublished exchanges, posted to CW this morning, Brunner offers some insider detail about her recent lawsuit against Diebold/Premier, concerning the revelation that their tabulators simply drop thousands of votes without notice; the depth of her surprise at the results of her landmark "EVEREST" security tests of Ohio's e-voting machines; and what may lay beyond e-voting, such as the possibility of hand-counting in Ohio.
Please read the new interview at ComputerWorld (and don't forget to check out some of the interesting comments that have been posted to it already today.)
