Problem With Electronic Voting Machines?
There is a potential problem with new electronic voting machines that will be used in Tuesday's primary election.
Ten counties in our area will use touch screen machines made by Diebold Election Systems. They are: Schuylkill, Carbon, Northumberland, Bradford, Sullivan, Pike, Tioga, Lehigh, Lycoming and Union Counties.
Black Box Voting, a nonpartisan, non-profit organization, claims to have discovered a flaw in the machines' security system. The group claims hackers could possibly use the machines' software to rig an election. The warning was also sent to other states using the machines.
Election officials in Pennsylvania say they have already taken measures to secure the voting machines.
Video and flash demonstrations of the iVotronic Voting System (not Diebold) are at the Luzerne County Bureau of Elections site.
