A federally funded group of voting system experts called on the United
States' Election Assistance Commission, which oversees the nation's
state-run elections, to revamp its recommended process for evaluating the
security of electronic voting devices.

In comments published last week, the ten researchers that collectively make
up A Center for Correct, Usable, Reliable, Auditable and Transparent
Elections (ACCURATE) stated that current voting systems are not designed
with security in mind and current testing procedures mistakenly focus on
voting functionality, not system security. The center, funded by the
National Science Foundation in August, released the comments on the last day
of a public comment period held by the US Election Assistance Commission on
its Voluntary Voting System Guidelines.
