Voting machine vendor Election Systems & Software (ES&S) has called on Congress to pass legislation requiring paper trails for all votes to protect against hacking, and vowed to stop selling paperless voting machines as the primary voting device in election jurisdictions.
ES&S CEO Tom Burt wrote in an op-ed that such rules, along with a mandate for voting system security testing by outside researchers, are needed to restore "the general public's faith in the process of casting a ballot."
Georgetown University's Matt Blaze thinks Burt's op-ed is a solid beginning, adding, "The voting system vendor community, which has long automatically denied even the most glaring security weaknesses, is starting to see the handwriting on the wall on demand for more secure voting system architecture."
