Jim_Callahan: Marine1: You know what almost always works?Paper ballots going into a scantron machine.But OMG COMPUTORZ.Um... scantrons fail as often or more often than most forms of electronic voting. Punch-card readers fail significantly more often than either. Also, a scantron reader is a computer, numbnuts.These are, in fact, one of the reasons that we've been switching to computerized ballots, along with irregularities in the procedure being easier to identify and track and there being a better, albeit less literal, paper trail (stick some extra paper ballots in the box? No one will ever know. Alter the numbers in a machine? "File last edited on:"...).Basically, while you're entitled to your own (moronic luddite) opinion, you don't get your own facts. fark off.
