High-tech twist for election

By Ryan Davis of the Baltimore Sun Staff

Can the 2004 Elections Be Taint Free?
By Ekram Haque for the Muslim American Society
As George Bush and the Republican Party go into full gear in hopes of clinching a landslide victory in 2004, many Americans will be looking for a comprehensive solution to the 2000 Florida voting fiasco. Three years and millions of dollars later, doubts remain if all states will have the necessary legislation and systems in place in time. Despite an extensive investigation of Florida election irregularities by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and the passage of the federal landmark Help America Vote Act (HAVA), states have not implemented all of the mandated corrective actions, the high-tech voting machines being offered have security flaws, and their vendors are allegedly quite close to the Republican Party.

Budgeting for Another Florida
Opinion from the NY Times
President Bush has been spending money with reckless abandon, but he has found at least one place to economize: election reform. Mr. Bush undoubtedly remembers the debacle of 2000, and the federal government's promise to replace unreliable voting machines, train poll workers and upgrade voter registration lists before another presidential election rolled around. But in the budget he proposed last week, fixing the machinery of American democracy wound up on the bottom of the president's priorities, and wildly underfunded.

Tallying the supervisors
Palm Beach Post Editorial
Pam Iorio, the former Hillsborough County elections supervisor who last year was elected Tampa's mayor, is correct that the public "has a different take of what they're going to accept and not accept" in the wake of the 2000 presidential election debacle. With her former colleagues increasingly hanging up more than their chads, however, the public will only further question the integrity of their increasingly electronic voting systems.
