After Your Vote Vanishes    Story Here  Archive

Editorial in the Washington Post 27 August 2004
IF MARYLAND voters are compelled to use electronic voting machines as set up by state officials, their votes on the touch-screens will be touched and gone never to be recounted usefully if the system crashes, hackers attack, well-meaning programmers mess up or glitches arise. Such is the unnecessary risk that Maryland is running. Opponents of this vanishing-vote system have been in court this week seeking a preliminary injunction, asking that the state be required to equip machines with printers that would make a paper copy of each ballot. On the opening day of a three-day hearing before Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Joseph P. Manck, the plaintiffs argued that the machines to be used in Maryland "are uniquely insecure and vulnerable to outside attack" and that changes can and must be made before votes are cast in November.

M.J. Andersen: Scary scenarios for upcoming elections    Story Here  Archive

Editorial by M. J. Andersen in the Providence Journal (RI) 27 August 2004
Hamm's South Korean rival was the victim of judging errors that, once corrected, placed him first in the men's all-around gymnastic competition. On the other hand, he delayed too long in objecting. Olympic rules prohibit late changes in results. And anyway, deductions the judges should have applied still would have kept the South Korean from winning.
It is a debate that smarts, a debate that will never end. And yet, despite the exacting stakes, this was only an athletic contest. Imagine if the prize were, say, the presidency of the United States.

By Debbie Taylor, Registrar of Voters in the Falls Church News-Press 26 August 2004
Recently, the News-Press ran Paul Krugman's op-ed piece titled "Saving the Vote". I disagree with most of what is said in that essay, and feel that it does not present a balanced analysis of the current election situation. The piece does make one important observation, however. The point it makes is that the American people no longer trust the validity of American elections.
