Testing Cannot Tell Whether Ballot-Marking Devices Alter Election Outcomes [article]

Philip B. Stark, Ran Xie
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In practice, none of these methods can protect against outcome-altering problems. L&A testing is ineffective in part because BMDs "know" the time and date of the test and the election.  ...  In _passive_ testing, agents monitor the rate at which voters "spoil" ballots and request another opportunity to mark a ballot: an anomalously high rate might result from BMD malfunctions.  ...  Mallory does not have to change many votes to alter the outcome of a typical contest for an elected official in a U.S. city or incorporated township.  ...
