From Bo Lipari of New Yorkers for Verified Voting:

A task force of government, academic and non-profit experts convened by the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU has today released the first comprehensive threat analysis of three of the most popular types of electronic voting systems.

Here’s a quick quote from MIT professor Ron Rivest from the press release:

“I see this as an historic report because it’s the first time we’ve systematically examined security concerns presented by all of the electronic
voting systems in use. The report will be invaluable for any election official grappling with electronic security and, hopefully, will pave the way for widespread adoption of better safeguards.”

Here’s the press release, executive summary and full report.

Here is USA Today and Reuter’s coverage:

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
