All tested DRE voting machines fail in Ohio study

The Ohio Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner, has released a collection of reports from the experts she commissioned to study each kind of direct recording electronic (DRE) voting machine used in Ohio. All failed miserably. This is quite consistent with the results of the similar study in California.

The manufacturers, of course, insist that all problems will be solved by the next election. Somehow, they are going to become competent overnight.

Avi Rubin's blog has an excellent summary, which I can't improve on.

Updated to add: Matt Blaze, one of the principals in the study, also has an interesting post.
