Questions Remain About Voting Machine Software Integrity

Voting Integrity Groups Issue Mixed Verdict After Firmware Investigation

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - April 6, 2008. As Pittsburgh approaches a contested mayoral primary and school districts across Allegheny County prepare to elect new directors, questions remain about the software controlling our voting machines. PA Verified Voting and VoteAllegheny have released their analysis of the December 22, 2008 post-election firmware examination carried out by SysTest Labs and the County Elections Division. The citizen groups commend Allegheny County and Commonwealth officials for improving election integrity and public confidence by examining a sample of machines. However, due to procedural limitations, the software coverage was incomplete and too few machines were examined. VoteAllegheny and PA Verified Voting hope Allegheny County's verification efforts in 2008 are improved on and can serve as a stepping stone toward election integrity efforts across Pennsylvania.
