MORE ON THE NEW HAMPSHIRE VOTE, at Ars Technica. Conclusion: “As of today, only sixteen states mandate both a voter-verified paper trail (VVPT) and a random manual audit of election results. The remaining 34 either don’t have a mandatory VVPT, don’t have mandatory audits, or don’t have either. So that’s 34 possibilities for a close presidential contest to produce the same blizzard of data, analysis, accusation, and uncertainty that we saw on a very small scale with New Hampshire. Let’s hope for a blow-out, landslide victory by one side, because I get tired just thinking about anything closer.”
Read the whole thing. And we really need much better security and auditability for voting. And voters.
