Avi and Me, Election Officials

Avi Rubin (John Hopkins Computer Security Institute) served as an election judge in yesterday's primary in his area (Baltimore, Maryland), using the Diebold Accuvote TS.

He has several remarks, has relaxed about some of his security concerns, and is even more worried about some others. Read on

I served -- similar job, different title -- as an assistant system inspector in my own precinct yesterday (San Diego County, California), using the Diebold TsX, a slightly different system. I'll be posting a detailed description of the experience within the next couple days, including a couple photos.

My biggest concern recently has been about Registrar control over the version of the software used in these units, and election transparancy, and it has not been assuaged.
