Invisible Ballots

William Gazecki's 2004 talking-heads documentary is a horror show about the perils of electronic voting machines, with chilling details provided by computer scientists and others. Without a paper trail there's no check against fraud, convicted felons have worked for some of the manufacturers, and one computer security expert, Avi Rubin of Johns Hopkins University, says that after he saw vulnerabilities in the computer code Diebold made public on the Internet, the company complained to his employer. The testimony offered seems pretty convincing, but the other side isn't presented—you won't learn that some of Rubin's claims about vulnerabilities have been refuted. Near the end someone points out that nothing will change until American voters insist on it. 55 min.
