Today's Voting Machines Story

-- by Dave Johnson

USATODAY.com - Electronic voting machines come under legal attack from activists

The article focuses on reliability, without mentioning paper trails at all. As if making the machines "reliable" reduces the need to be able to prove how people voted.

Voting machine must have a way to VERIFY that the machines are reporting what the voters wanted.

Once again, no. This is too broad to the point where it actively invites wholesale election theft.

Machines must be seen only as devices that aid in the production of paper ballots. No other formulation of their role in American elections makes any sense.
