Finland's flawed e-voting scheme - blame the voters?
Ministry of Justice earns itself an
They used DRE's so what predictions could we have made?

Helsinki Finland, was Linus Torvalds's birthplace and stomping ground. For those who don't know, Linus created what we call LINUX. Be interesting to hear Linus's take on this, now that we know so much more about these unvalidatable electronic vote tabulation devices.
