Insecurities and Inaccuracies of the
Sequoia AVC Advantage 9.00H DRE Voting Machine


As of October 17th, 2008, we can release the 90-minute evidentiary video that we submitted to the Court on September 2nd. We are seeking the Court's permission to release a much shorter video which demonstrates the most important points more succinctly. We hope to receive such permission within a few days.

The evidentiary video, shown below, is about an hour and a half long. The hi-resolution video is about 1 gigabyte and may take quite a while to download. The video demonstrates several ways in which the AVC Advantage, even when not "hacked" by replacement of a ROM chip, can fail to faithfully record the intent of the voter. Then the video demonstrates how an attacker can pick the lock of the AVC Advantage and install a fraudulent vote-miscounting program. Finally, the video demonstrates that this fraudulent program does not cheat in pre-election testing, but does transfer votes from one candidate to another in actual election mode.
