What, actually audit a computerized election?

County records release ordered | www.azstarnet.com ®:

Pima County will have to turn over electronic database records from past elections to the Pima County Democratic Party, a judge ruled Tuesday. The county must release records requested a year ago, including copies of the Diebold GEMS databases for the 2006 primary and general elections, because they fall under state public-records law, Pima County Superior Judge Michael Miller said. That means the Democratic Party will have a chance to inspect the records for transparency and security. Without the records, the party cannot fully monitor elections, a job political parties are required by statute to do, Miller wrote in his ruling. That outweighs the risks associated with making the records public, he wrote.
