While the various conspiracy theories still seem to go a bit overboard, it's becoming increasingly clear that there were a lot of very serious problems with the voting technology used in the election. The latest is a city council election in Indiana where the optical scanning technology awarded Democratic votes to a Libertarian candidate. A hand recount corrected the problem -- but the only reason it drew attention was because the Libertarian candidate seemed to get way too many votes. The company who made the equipment swears they've never had such problems before, but suddenly more people are checking into other election results. At least, in this case, there was a way to recount the votes. With the e-voting systems, there's no way to do such a thing.
