Campaign against voting computers

Project Area: 01

In the Bundestag elections on 18 September 2005, voting computers from the Dutch company NEDAP were used in Germany. The public cannot understand the counting of votes on voting computers in any way.

The use of the computers is are highly controversial worldwide due to proven possibilities of manipulation. The The Chaos Computer Club is therefore conducting a campaign in cooperation with the Wau Holland Foundation to abolish the legal basis for the use of voting computers in Germany.

The campaign includes investigations into the manipulability of voting computers, inquiries about the Freedom of Information Act to uncover the actual cost structures and interdependencies in the purchase of voting computers, and legal action against the use of voting computers.
