Such a system would require not only a voting machine designed with more care and attention to security, but also an array of safeguards, including a well-designed voter-verifiable paper audit trail system, random audits and forensic analysis, and truly independent security review.These conclusions come as no surprise to us. Our recent security report recommended, among other things, that states require audits of voter-verifiable paper records. We applaud the work of the Princeton researchers and implore states to consider these and other security threats when purchasing electronic voting machines.
