Abstract: "This report details the consequences of lack of regulation and oversight of the voting machine industry. Voting machine manufacturers -- unlike many other kinds of manufacturers selling products in the United States -- are not required to report malfunctions of most of their systems to any government agency. Nor is there a government agency that either investigates mechanical failures or alerts election officials and the public to possible problems for most systems (let alone requiring voting system manufacturers to fix such problems). While there has been an increase in government oversight of voting systems in the very recent past -- and in particular for new systems introduced since 2009 -- we conclude that the current process for publicizing and addressing voting system defects nationally is inadequate"--Introduction.
