Editorial in the Myrtle Beach Sun News
South Carolina seems to be headed for a no-win situation on the credibility of the statewide vote count in the Nov. 2 election. If the state Election Commission gets clearance to put electronic touch-screen voting machines in the S.C. counties that don't already have them, those machines won't create a paper record of the voting for recount or vote-verification purposes.

By Susan Kuchinskas for InternetNews.com
A suit filed in Riverside County, California, claims that the Registrar of Voters ignored the law. But electronic voting technology muddies the waters.

By ABBY GOODNOUGH for the New York Times
MIAMI, July 14 - Three years after Gov.

The Touch-screen "Trust Fall"    Story Here  Archive
Published:Thursday, July 15, 2004
by Carol Schiffler for Citizens for Legitimate Government
Team-building events are difficult for computer software test groups. One of the major problems is trying to find corporate trainers that are willing to forego all those wonderful activities designed to foster trust between team members. Blind-folded walks are problematic, and the famous “trust fall”  - wherein a team member free-falls backwards into a colleague’s arms – is out of the question. The reason for this, of course, is that those who test computer programs base their entire career on being suspicious. “How do you know that works?” “How will that work with your current business processes?” and “Yeah, right – just one little change – no need to re-test. We’ve heard that one before!” are phrases the typical software tester utters every single day of the week.

By HOWARD TROXLER, St. Petersburg Times Columnist
My question is, did my friends in Gov. Jeb Bush's administration intentionally try to look so goofy over this list of 47,000 names of potential purgees from Florida's voter rolls?
Was there a sale on rubber red noses and floppy shoes down at the Clown Emporium? Was this a plot to keep us all laughing while Karl Rove sneaks into the basement and steals the voting machines?

Pettis works to end punch card voting    Story Here  Archive
Published:Thursday, July 15, 2004
By Beth Fortune for The Sedalia Democrat
Pettis County voters may be filling in ovals instead of punching out chads by 2006.
Punch-card ballots cannot be used for federal elections held after January 2006, according to the Help America Vote Act, passed in 2002. That means that Pettis County must purchase new voting machines for each of the 25 precincts, as well as one for absentee votes taken at the courthouse.


Don't compromise secret ballot    Story Here  Archive
Published:Thursday, July 15, 2004
Editorial in the Charleston Post and Courier
There's no question that electronic voting machines purchased by the state of South Carolina must maintain a paper trail. A paper record of vote tallies is necessary to ensure that results haven't been tampered with, and to provide for challenges to ballot results. In contrast, providing an individual receipt to each voter, as recommended by one lawmaker, could actually be used to compromise the inviolability of the secret ballot.

Reconsidering E-Voting    Story Here  Archive
Published:Thursday, July 15, 2004
by David Pogue for the New York Times
My e-column last week, in which I attempted to get my brain around the experts' astoundingly different opinions on electronic voting machines, generated a huge number of reader responses.
(Incidentally, shortly after the e-mail went out, I got word that my "CBS News Sunday Morning" segment on the topic has been rescheduled for August 1-and may shift yet again, which isn't uncommon in the TV news business. If you woke up early or took the time to set the VCR last Sunday, my most frustrated apologies.)
