Now that's a perfect score you don't want to see.

During the Voting Machine Hacking Village, a hack-a-thon in Las Vegas, participants managed to hack into all 100 voting machines.

The results are great for the hackers, but deeply concerning for election security.

The Fulcrum covered the hack-a-thon's startling results:

The equipment broken into included touchscreens, optical scan paper voting devices, paper ballot marking devices and electronic poll books—all the technologies that are currently in widest use by the more than 5,000 local jurisdictions that conduct our elections.

The volunteer intruders gained access in most cases through external interfaces accessible to voters or precinct workers.
