The region is preparing for the upcoming Summit of the Americas. However, today I would like to highlight a story from Bolivia, written by my friend Eneas Biglione of HACER: Bolivia: Padron biometrico, el AS bajo la manga de Evo Morales. The article explains how Smarmatic, the same manufacturer of the Venezuelan voting machines, is making biometric voting machines for the use of the Evo Morales regime. Considering how the Smartmatic system provides “an unknown number of calculations and processing supposedly for the purpose of gathering, transmitting and totalling the number of votes” which could not be audited by the country’s Grupo de Seguimiento Tecnico for a number of reasons, including that the machines have removable memories, this does not bide well for Bolivia.
