Ericb, I was just about to post that Hugo Chavez link. It's much more substantiated than the typical "[lefty/Islamic] radicals did it!" fingerpointing our administration's gotten so good at, though still pretty tenuous-feeling to me.
I don't get why there can't be a log-in code or something to reset the machine the people give you when you sign in--like a PIN only good for that vote. Does a poll worker have to manually do something to each machine after someone votes, or no? Does a voter have to end the transaction somehow? and doesn't that reset the machine?

Though it's surely much more entertaining to chalk this up to any number of various and sundry conspiracies, the reality is that this is a usability issue, plain and simple. The machines have not been adequately designed and certainly have not been properly tested in heavy usage conditions.
