Voters to See Few Big Changes After Fla.    Story Here  Archive
ERICA WERNER Associated Press 12 October 2004
Voters clamored for reform after the fiasco in Florida four years ago. But when they return to vote again for president on Nov. 2, many may be surprised to discover how little has changed.
Instead of brand-new equipment, computerized voter-registration lists and other improvements, most voters will find the same machines they used last time, few changes for poll workers, and little sign of the overhaul Americans were promised after the 2000 election

Nevada defuses some criticism    Story Here  Archive
CARLOS CAMPOS Atlanta Journal-Constitution 11 October 2004
Elections officials in Nevada believe they have defused much of the criticism of electronic voting by adding so-called voter-verified paper audit trails to many of its voting machines. Officials in Georgia have so far resisted including such a paper trail on the state's 24,500 Diebold touchscreen voting machines expected to be used in the Nov. 2 general election. Here's a look at how the paper trail works in Nevada and a partial critique by Georgia elections officials of the system.

By Michael Hill Baltimore Sun 10 October 2004

With more and more Americans - including voters in Maryland - depending on computer programs to tally their votes, it would not be surprising if somewhere along the line the same type of glitch that occasionally keeps your home computer from booting up pops up in the polling process.


Touch-screen voting should be a help    Story Here  Archive
Opinion Ted Selker Newsday 10 October 2004
Roughly a third of U.S. voters in the November election are expected to use electronic voting machines. In California, any county using these machines also must provide the option of a paper ballot. This may comfort those who are "freaking out" (to quote the head of a voting advocacy group) that their vote somehow won't count if made on a computer screen. But they are making a false assumption that paper is safer than electronic records.

LAS VEGAS — In a state that thrives on gambling, elections officials believe they've taken the risk out of electronic voting.
Nevada last month became the first state to employ electronic voting machines with printers that allow voters to confirm their computer ions against a paper receipt. And officials believe those paper trails — which Georgia activists have lobbied unsuccessfully for — are instilling new confidence in electronic voting.
