"Can the votes on this Diebold system be hacked using the memory card?"
2 people voted Yes. 6 people voted No. The machine reported 7 Yes, 1 No.

As a software "hacker" (in the proper, non-malicious definition), I can say this is definitely a completely valid and utterly shocking "hack" that may have affected countless elections over the years...

"If I had not seen what was behind this, I'd have no reason not to, I would have certified this election as a true and accurate result of a vote." - Ion Sancho, Supervisor of Elections, Leon County, Florida.

From the highly underrated documentary, "Hacking Democracy". See more about the hack and its background: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hursti_Hack
