EFF presents “Hack the Vote 2011”! (Yes, THEY get it!)

Hack the Vote 2011

EFF and Vegas 2.0 proudly present Hack the Vote 2011, an election about and for hackers, to be held on a Diebold AccuVote TSx electronic voting machine. The objective is simple: the candidate with the most votes following the one-day election will be crowned the new “World’s No. 1 Hacker.” EFF and noted e-voting security expert Professor Alex Halderman and Joseph Lorenzo Hall have designed a contest we hope will ensure that the election is… creative, if nothing else. If candidates can be elected to statewide and even nationwide office based on the the tabulations generated by electronic voting machines, surely an election by and among the best hackers in the world will be fairly decided by the number of votes cast, right? Cast your vote for special Def Con ballot measures… or register for a chance to try to make the machine do what you want instead.

The Rules:

1. Come to the Summit Party at Def Con for the official kick-off announcement: Thursday at 8:30pm – 4:00am, at the Rio Hotel & Casino ~ Pavilion 1 (3700 W. Flamingo Road, Las Vegas, NV 89103). Follow twitter.com/EFFsummit for details.
