    Anyone know of a website intro to these new machines for those unable to view the demo? We don’t want any hanging chads…

    Strauss and Simon can count on my vote.

  • Obama?

    Why are electronic voting being utilized when some many irregularities have been reported with them?

  • Big Dave

    Thanks, CFB!

    @ “Obama?”: There are a lot of different kinds of electronic voting machines. Optical machines (such as the ones that will be used this Primary) are actually pretty good because you can see a voter’s intent on the original ballot, and you have a paper-trail.

    These are far superior to the touch-screen systems that many other areas use.

    No system of voting, including the old mechanical machines, is tamper-proof. But the optical machines are the best system I know.

  • Obama?

    Thanks for the info Quinn Raymond, but with the Diebold voting machine fraud & Bush’s dubious wins in 2000 & 2004, I’m still leery of implementing more electronic voting so soon.

    @Obama?: I will miss the old mechanical machines, and wish we could keep them. But I blame the 2000 election on Florida (they messed it up a century before, too, with a completely different system). I blame the 2004 election on The American People As A Whole.
