The Diebold voting machines, which are closed source "proprietary" programmed, are proven to be able to be hacked by Argonne National Laboratory. Read the excellent Salon article here (link) by Brad Friedman.
I mentioned Diebold with skepticism (of their honesty) back in 2008. They did not deliver the election for McCain as their CEO said they would and as I had feared they actually might, but they also didn't have enough time to plan and execute their machinations. Years later, with Republican state gerrymandering, and more infiltration of their closed source voting machines (aka ballot distortion devices), a much easier win looks to be in-store for November 2012.
