On Monday, I told you about a claim made by BlackBox Voting's Brad Spencer. The charge? Advanced Voting Solutions provided Northampton County with electronic voting machines different from those certified by Pennsylvania's Department of State. The result? We voted with machines that the state never approved.
Today, BlackBox Voting substantiated these accusations with documentary evidence that includes a bill of materials, technical drawings as well as Pennsylvania's own examination.
If you look at the WinVote machines above, you'll see two black boxes that look pretty much identical. But pop open the hood, and you'll see two completely different animals, as illustrated on the right. One of these is what was delivered to Pennsylvania and the other is what was approved. I'm no rocket scientist, but even I can see there's a huge difference. I don't want to rush to judgment without hearing from AVS, but these are serious questions that need answers.
