Evidence Of Tremendous Fraud Found In Brazilian E-Voting System
from the no-major-problems,-huh? dept
Just as we point to claims from some think tanks that e-voting works great as is, and things like verifiable paper trails aren't needed, there are reports coming out suggesting that there was a massive amount of fraud in the latest Brazilian elections, which made extensive use of e-voting machines. The reports claim that more than one-third of the e-voting machines used in the state of Alagoas show signs of manipulation. The number of ballots stored by the machines is less than the number of voters. Some of the votes apparently come from e-voting machines that don't exist, and some machines appear not to have registered a single vote. Are those think tanks going to explain this away as "user error" as well?
