John Hopkins' study on Diebold Voting Machines  

John Hopkins did a study , titled Analysis of an Electronic Voting System, focusing on Diebold Voting Machines, published on Feb. 27, 2004, and had this to say in their conclusion:

The model where individual vendors write the proprietary code to run our elections appears to be unreliable, and if we do not change the process of designing our voting systems, we will have no confidence our election results will reflect the will of the electorate. We owe to to ourselves and to our future to have robust, well-designed election systems to preserve the bedrock of our democracy.
