Florida still lacks uniform voting system
By Pamela Hasterok, Vantage Point, for the Daytona Beach News-Journal
It is that time again. Chaos! Confusion! Mayhem! Yes, it's a presidential election year in Florida. Considering the ordeal of 2000, voters could be forgiven if they never entered a polling place again, after being blamed and humiliated for the 36-day deadlock the nation endured before the U.S. Supreme Court chose George W. Bush as president. The state blamed voters, too, trying to pass off its inept and often unconscionable handling of ballots as the fault of those casting the vote.

By Cameron Jahn   Sacramento Bee Staff Writer

Democracy at Risk
By PAUL KRUGMAN, New York Times OP-ED Columnist
The disputed election of 2000 left a lasting scar on the nation's psyche. A recent Zogby poll found that even in red states, which voted for George W. Bush, 32 percent of the public believes that the election was stolen. In blue states, the fraction is 44 percent.


The Perils of Online Voting    Story Here  Archive
New York Times Opinion:
Internet voting has been viewed as a possible cure for some of the ills that afflict the mechanics of American democracy. Recently, the technology has seemed to move ahead of any serious consideration of whether it is actually a good idea to allow home computer owners to choose a president in the same way they order bath towels online or send e-mail to their relatives. But now there are grave questions about whether even the technology makes sense.
