Electronic Voting

Avi Rubin is a computer scientist at Johns Hopkins and was the person who analyzed the Diebold code that Bev Harris downloaded. He was also one of the computer scientists the State of California asked to test the security of a number of e-voting machines in 2006. He found grave security problems with all the voting machines and software he has examined.
You might think he is opposed to any sort of e-voting. Read this interview( http://www.goodgearguide.com.au/article/251953/e-voting_activist_more_optimistic_about_voting_systems/ ), and answer the following questions;
1-The Kern County Election Clerk has pointed to “smooth elections” with our current electronic voting machines. No problems with the machines have been encountered. Does Dr. Rubin think this should give us confidence that the results were correct? Why or why not?(explain your answer)
2-Does Dr. Rubin think that computerized voting systems can be made to work reliably and safely? What would be necessary? Are we there yet?
3-Dr. Rubin emphasizes the need for an audit trail. What does he mean by that, and why is it important?
4-The Open Voting Consortium believes that voting software should be Open Source. Read about their solution(http://www.openvotingconsortium.org/our_solution) and compare it to Dr. Rubin’s requirements.
