Voting machines! Again! 

Premier Election Solutions (formerly Diebold) machines in Ohio fail to count votes. As far as anyone knows it's just a normal bug.

Premier Election Solutions started off by blaming the problem on a conflict with anti-virus software. I was trying to find a way to explain why that sounds wrong to a security person, but someone beat me to it. My favorite nerdy cartoon about antivirus on voting machines.

It's a bad sign when a system has a bug that mission-critical that didn't get caught in testing. Ohio's Secretary of State is suing.
