Davis County voting machines are OK
An article from today's Davis County Clipper, says that the Davis County Clerk has no concerns about the electronic voting machines. According to the article he says, "Our IT (computer) people have looked at the machines; they are very secure." Working in IT, there is no way I would ever tell my government that any computer is very secure. There are two reasons that I wouldn't say this. First, I know enough about computers to know that they can never be completely secure. There will always be a chance of compromise. Second, if something does go wrong, you know the first person that is going to need to polish up their resume will be the IT person that said the machine was very secure.
