      Glad to see we’re finally getting some standards on how eVoting machines should work (rather than just trusting the industry to police themselves…).  Of course our governments can decide whether or not to comply with the forthcoming standards.  It’s going to take someone “hacking” an election before we take this seriously as a nation.

      After the standards are finalized, it will be up to state and local governments to decide if they will require their machine manufacturers to comply with them.

      So many of these systems don’t have a way to verify that the counted vote matches what people voted. Without that basic piece you can’t prove there was a hack to get people mad.

      Shadow Government FTW!

      How true.  I was hoping to avoid the discussion of the paper trail, but I do believe that it is a VERY important (yet sadly missing) part of the eVoting system.

      I think this is one system in which a paper system is better than electronic. There is just too much that can go wrong. If it starts going wrong millions could die. WWIII, another Hitler, or another Stalin anyone?
