Fixing Democracy
New York Times OP/ED
The morning after the 2000 election, Americans woke up to a disturbing realization: our electoral system was too flawed to say with certainty who had won. Three years later, things may actually be worse. If this year's presidential election is at all close, there is every reason to believe that there will be another national trauma over who the rightful winner is, this time compounded by troubling new questions about the reliability of electronic voting machines.

Brave new elections
The Missoula Independent's Staff Writer Mike Keefe-Feldman Reports:
New machines open door for disabled-and fraud
This past election day, Missoula’s ballot tabulator was working so hard observers could actually see the 20-year-old scanning machine smoking in the Missoula County Courthouse. But by 2004’s presidential race, Missoula will have ushered in new voting technologies including the “precinct counter,” a ballot box scanner that can alert voters if they’ve over- or under-voted. Optical scanners will still be used to count absentee ballots, but most data will be tabulated through the use of the precinct counters, whose data can be downloaded onto a disk and loaded into a PC at the County Courthouse, according to Missoula County Clerk and Recorder/Treasurer Vickie Zeier.
