"I can insert it, and then it resets the card, and then I'm able to vote again," a Symantec researcher told CBS.
The latest warning comes from security firm Symantec, which has found a way to reprogram the cards used by some voting machines. A researcher told CNN that with a $15 device and a little expertise, anyone could give themselves 400 extra votes without poll workers suspecting a thing.
