JAMES FALLOWS New York Times 28 November 2004
I TRUST computers. When I first used A.T.M.'s, nearly 30 years ago, I carefully saved receipts in a folder and matched them with the bank's monthly statement.

Steven Levy Newsweek 28 November 2004

Others are more sweeping, like the charges that e-voting peculiarities could have somehow lost Kerry 260,000 votes in Florida.

MADISON ? Two Democratic lawmakers say they'll push for a ban on electronic voting machines in Wisconsin, if such machines don't record a vote on paper each time a ballot is cast. State Rep.
