Ditch the Diebolds

I'm hoping since we now have Democrats in nominal control of the federal government that maybe our *liberal* press will take a renewed interest in the inherently hackable touchscreen voting machines. As Brad Blog points out today, they're still very much a problem.
Even the audit log system on current versions of Premier Election Solutions' (formerly Diebold's) electronic voting and tabulating systems --- used in some 34 states across the nation --- fail to record the wholesale deletion of ballots. Even when ballots are deleted on the same day as an election.
We won by sheer numbers in the last election. The Dems advantage was simply too big to credibly game. We can't count on that in the future. Now would be the time to eliminate the system's reliance on such deeply flawed machines.
