This is from the security guru Bruce Schneier. . .his Doghouse of the 
month refers to various security-related idiocies he finds.  . . .


Doghouse: Merced County

Merced County is in California, and they explained why they chose 
electronic voting machines Election Systems & Software (ES&S). There 
are a bunch of vague selection criteria, but this one is quite 
explicit: "Uses 1,064 bit encryption, not 128 which is less secure."

I am simply too appalled to comment further.
