Programmer under oath admits computers rig elections

As a person with a background in computer science, (1) I would not trust any voter system software to return reliable results as it could contain programming errors (it is almost impossible to prove that it does not), and (2) I could ensure that programmers design a voting machine system that would return any result that I wanted, and make it extremely difficult to discover this in the source code.  And if the malicious code is found, we could claim it was a programming mistake.  Therefore voting systems that rely on computer programs to determine election results should be banned as they have a huge potential for both inadvertent error and deliberate voting fraud.

In regards to voting:
(1) Everyone who wishes to vote must be registered to vote.
(2) Everyone who registers to vote must show legitimate government-issued identification.
(3) Everyone who votes must present government-issued identification at the time of voting.
(4) There must be a physical record or artifact of every vote cast, such as a physical ballot.  (Electronic or digital records do not meet this criteria.)

Watch the following videos about programmer Clint Curtis' allegations that Rep. Tom Feeney approached him to create vote-rigging software for the Florida elections (I believe these events occurred in 2001 and earlier).

  1. Most people see electronic voting as a mere technical evolution of ballot paper voting and therefore they are confidently waiting for hardware and software that will make electronic elections as secure as remote banking. Vertical Cable Management
