Shaking the faith - electronic voting

Wed 28 Jul 2004, 09:05 AM



by Ben Langhinrichs
For those of you who don't yet get nervous about electronic voting machines (after Diebold's CEO vowed "I am committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year" for example), there is news that the entire vote from the 2002 Miami-Dade Gubanatorial election, which has been repeatedly questioned because of voting irregularities, was lost in a power outage or two.  OK, now granted that anybody but the Floridians would have backed the information up on DVD's, I am just not sure we are ready for electronic voting.  Hanging chads are bad, and punch cards are a nuisance, but losing all the results?
