[User Picture]11:04 am - This brings to mind a great line from a craptastic movie...
...I'm not sure what worries me more. That there's a nuclear weapon on the loose, or that it happens often enough to have it's own term.

[The touchscreens] slip out of sync, making votes register incorrectly. Poll workers are trained to recalibrate them on the spot...

Ignoring the political leaning of the article, I have to say 'duh!' to this. This is why you don't use any input device that needs to be calibrated for a voting system. And if it's not durable enough to be installed in a video-game in a Chuck-E-Cheese's, it's not durable enough to trust a vote to. So you're stuck with pushbuttons, digital joysticks, and/or click-dials that are little more than a hybrid between a joystick and a pushbutton. Anything else? I'll ask for a paper ballot, please, and that's not even discussing if electronic voting is safer against tampering than paper voting.4 commentsLeave a comment
