“Tested and Tested”—Ooops–Maybe Not

More than once (in Pocahontas, in Fort Dodge) I personally heard voting machine advocates tell an audience that touchsreen software was tested to the N-th degree, even “line by line”.

Only a couple federally sanctioned labs ever tested software in voting machines. Now comes news that one of them (Ciber) has been blocked from further such work because of poor quality control.

Score another point for the critics of current voting machines and the way they get evaluated. The score is about 183 to 0 now.
