Judge Won't Allow Researchers To Reveal Report On E-Voting Machines

Despite the fact that we're a month away from an election that will use these machines that time and time again have been shown to have problems accurately and reliably counting votes, no one is allowed to see the report. Voters in New Jersey won't be told the results of the report until after it's too late to request absentee ballots. As the head researcher on the report notes, even New Jersey's governor and secretary of state are not allowed to read the report and use it to make public policy decisions that would more likely create a fair election. For so many years now, the e-voting companies have dismissed concerns, blocked attempts to investigate, threatened investigators and almost never admitted any fault, despite tons and tons of evidence that the machines simply do not work that well. It's a travesty that this report is being suppressed.
