The co-chair of the New York State Board of Elections has formally requested that the Election Operations Unit of the State Board re-examine the State's certification of the Dominion ImageCast Evolution voting machine.
The Dominion ImageCast Evolution (also called Dominion ICE) is an "all-in-one" voting machine that combines in the same paper path an optical scanner (for hand-marked bubble ballots) with a printer (for machine-marked ballots via a touchscreen or audio interface).
Last October, I explained that why this is such a bad idea that it should be considered a design flaw: if a hacker were able to install fraudulent software into the ICE, that software could print additional votes onto a voter's ballot after the last time the voter sees the ballot.
I'll just give one example of what the hacker's vote-stealing software could do: In any race where the voter undervotes (does not mark a choice), the hacked software could print a vote into the bubble for the candidate that the hacker wants to win.
