Does not inspire confidence.
The guest's mouth was saying "Yes, we're safer," while his visible body language was "Ummm...NOOOOO!!"

I agree.  I think that not only are the electornic voting systems no more secure than they've been for the past decade or two (at the least), but municipalities are woefully under-concerned and, thusly, woefully under-informed about the issues.

Paper ballots are, in my opinion, the answer.

Lack of Proof is NOT Lack of Attacks -- its proof of a growing problem
So the biggest falicy is that the reports of failed attacks somehow "Proves" that the election systems are safe.

It does not.

All it proves is that we saw some failed attacks. And if you think about it, if the attacks are successful, they are going to erase their footprints, so how would you know?

So here, we can just borrow from Quality Assurance over the last 50 years. In Quality Control, we know that the number of defects that escape a factory into the field and become customer issues is directly proportional to the number of defects found in the factory. That's why everyone is so concerned about zero defects in the factory.

Applying that to security of the election infrastructure, all these failed attacks are actually proof that the likelihood that there have been successful attacks is increasing. Thus we should not be assured and complacent. This is actually evidence that we need to be more vigilant and figure out what we aren't doing that we aren't catching the attacks that have been succeeding.
