    even the current versions - even the ones that were to replace faulty versions -

    The BRAD BLOG : Diebold Admits Audit Logs in ALL Versions of Their Software Fail to Record Ballot Deletions

    And the amount that we paid for Help America Vote Act? 4 Billion. That is 20 times the amount of these AIG bonuses.

    CLARIFICATION: Our original headline was somewhat clumsily worded as: "Diebold Admits ALL Versions of Their Software Delete Ballots Without Notice". In fact, while ballots can be deleted by administrators, from all versions, without being noted in the audit logs, at this time we're only aware of versions 1.18.19, 1.18.20, 1.18.21, 1.18.22 and 1.18.23 doing so automatically (the "deck zero" bug described in the story). All versions of the GEMS software allow the deletion of ballots, which are not necessarily recorded in the audit logs. Though we don't know if, in fact, the software itself deletes those ballots, as we know that it does in the versions mentioned above. We apologize for any unintended confusion to readers.

    Welcome.

    By the way I at times get a little testy with people acting like vote fraud hasn't been going on since the ancient Greeks first started holding elections. And that mistakes haven't been part of the same process for as long.

    If it gets both sides on this issue then I am all for that line of thinking.

    Back to a more pertinent part of the story.

    If the major vote software used in this country allows admins to delete ballots on election day without any trail of the deletion in the audit log, is that a reason for concern?

    (especially since we now have a terrorist in office.... ;) )

    Is it? As historically politically corrupt as this Nation is? Need you ask? I don't trust either side. I'm just not sure what the solution is.

    We should have open ballots.

    Just like the unions want.
