I don't trust voting machines at all, even if they have libre software
inside. It's way more secure against rigged elections to get people to
manually count the votes. Every person knows how to make sure that a
manually counted election is not stolen, but one must be an expert in order
to make sure an electronic voting election is not rigged.
I also think that, based on the information avaible, Bush stole the 2004
election through voting machines.
