Phil Windley’s Technometria: Saying Yes to Paper Ballots

From Phil Windley’s Technometria | Saying Yes to Paper Ballots:

The standards are still evolving and experience is showing that the electronic machines do have problems accurately recording votes. (Emphasis in the original)

Paper ballots. Paper ballots. Paper ballots. Tell your congress(wo)man. Tell your senator. Tell your reps. Paper ballots. Let’s stop paying private firms huge amounts of money to ship badly-designed, poorly-engineered, easily-tricked voting machines. Voting is a lot more important than getting the results on the TV that night. Let’s do it right. Paper ballots. Audit trails. Open standards. Open code review.
