Keeping Electronic Voting Honest
77
Facts about the elections business
  • Most election officials know very little about
    computer technology.
  • Election officials depend heavily on expert
    advice.
  • Election officials turn a blind eye to failings
    in the system.

78
Facts about Computer Security
  • Computer security experts know little about
    little about computer science.
  • No effective anti-virus software.
  • Anti-virus software is a security threat in
    itself.

79
Facts about Public Trust
  • An election is not to name the winner, but to
    convince the losers that they lost.
  • Discussion of weaknesses in security technology
    both good and bad.

80
Facts about Election Fraud
  • Crooked politicians in past never convicted.
  • Routine error is common in elections, no matter
    the technology.

81
Conclusion
  • Combining paper ballots, end-to-end cryptographic
    models, and open source voting systems will help
    the voting process.
  • But this is not enough!

82
Digital Democracy?
83
Digital Democracy?
  • Statistics
  • Nearly 10 Million people are voting via computer
    this primary season.
  • 1 in 5 US voters will pick the president by
    pressing a button or computer screen.

84
Digital Democracy?
  • Effort to establish e-voting operates on the same
    level as the blind faith characteristic of the
    dot-com era.
  • Prophesying paper free work places, yet studies
    show offices use more paper than they did 10
    years ago.
  • Simplicity of e-voting marred by the errors they
    are actually producing.

85
Digital Democracy?
  • Error Statistics
  • Floridas touch-screens failed to register 134
    votes, in a race won by 12 ballots.
  • Security flaws in machines could allow hackers to
    alter data undetected.
  • San Diego county Problems plagued 10 of voting
    machines.
  • Alameda county Machinery problems drove 1 in 6
    voters away.

86
Digital Democracy?
  • Conclusion
  • Situation Unintended bugs are impossible to
    prevent and intentional back doors are impossible
    to detect.
  • One solution We dont have to make the system
    100 secure. What we have to do is make the
    security bar so high that anybody will say, to
    heck with that.
  • Consequences If people dont have confidence in
    the voting systems being used, then they lose
    faith in the voting process itself.
