Let the Hackers Take a Crack at it

this seems so common sense / smart to me that it makes me wonder WTH is wrong with us.. while our voting machine manufacturers disallow any sort of outside testing (and we struggle with accusations of tampering with these same machines each major election year) Brazil seems to have jumped on the obvious / best solution:

“Brazil opened up a ‘challenge’ allowing security experts and other hackers to request to take part in a big hack attempt on e-voting equipment. Not only that, but the government is going to give $5,000 to whoever successfully hacks into one of the e-voting systems. This seems like a much smarter way to check the security on these machines than the previous method of very basic gov’t oversight and the e-voting firms issuing a big ‘trust us’ answer to every question.” - SOURCE: TECHDIRT
