Default vote for Pac-Man



This is the Sequoia AVC Edge touch-screen DRE voting machine. In 2008, it was used in jurisdictions with almost 9 million voters. Alex Halderman and Ari Feldman replaced the voting software with Pac-Man. They did this in three afternoons, without breaking any tamper-evident seals. It would be easy to modify the software to steal votes, but that's been done before, and Pac-Man is more fun

Awesome idea. Estonia allows voters to cast on line!

Estonia first to allow online voting nationwide - Technology & science - Tech and gadgets - msnbc.com

we still use the little scantron type ballots here. I'll never use a electronic voting machine. do the country a favor and email that link to all your friends and relatives.
