Lazy Day Reading

While researching more information related to the news that Diebold has reached a $2.6M settlement with California, I found several interesting sources of information.

Being in the IT profession, I've always been a proponent of voting machines that have have a voter verified paper trail and will be spending more time digging into this over the next week or so.

In the meantime, for anyone who is looking for some light reading in the lazy days before Christmas, these links might be of interest:

Avi Rubin's analysis of some of Diebold's source code that was released on the internet.
An E-Voting and News blog that has a lot of good links and technical details.
A link to information on the Guardian ELECTronic 1242 voting machine used in Franklin county.
A map showing that the vast majority of Ohio counties do not use electronic voting machines - they use punch card or optical scan devices.

Happy digging. I'll be pulling some of the more interesting information from these and other links over the next couple weeks but feel free to let me know if there are certain areas of interest.
