Technicians show vote sequence remains in the voting machines

November 25, 2005

Despite denials that this was possible by the CNE since the recall vote, technicians from the opposition showed

international observers from the OAS and the European Union that it is
indeed possible to know the sequence of votes from the voting machines
used in Venezuela. This had been repeatedly denied by the both the CNE
and Smartmatic the company that makes the machines. Given that
separately there is a fingerprint grabbing machine,the two together
would allow for the identification of the voter.

The OAS and EU have sent a letter to the CNE asking to insure that this
may not be done. Sure, but what happens to the “old” elections done
under this same security leak? I hope they send their findings to the
Carter Center, maybe they may learn something useful for the future.
