Published:Monday, July 5, 2004
Opinion of the Dallas Morning News
There's just one thing wrong with electronic voting machines: People don't trust them to accurately record their votes. Voters reasonably fear fraud – a padding of the totals or a manipulation of the software so that a vote for Smith automatically becomes a vote for Jones.
