Private Ownership

    There is a fundamental conflict between a company's right to its secrets, and the public's absolute right to know how its elections are conducted. The public cannot have confidence in secret code written by convicted embezzlers for party hacks. The public must be able to see to computer code that is actually counting its votes.

    In the extreme example of inaccurate numbers appearing in Alaska in November of 2004, Diebold fought against the public inspecting computerized ballots that are public property.

    The private ownership problem can be solved, but it requires the political backbone to put the interests of the United States ahead of those of stockholders. This means requiring the owners to open up their hardware and software for public inspection.

Nobody, and no machine, should be counting votes in secret.
