Netherlands refrains from using EVMs for good

The Dutch council of ministers decided yesterday to refrain from using electronic voting machines for good.

This dates mainly back to the activities from the “We don’t trust voting computers group” by Rop Gongrijp who demonstrated on Dutch TV live how one change the EPROM of the Nedap voting machine and make it play chess.

Currently we are waiting for the ruling from the German constitutional court on the use of similar models of the Nedap EVMs in Germany.
