Ireland Realizes The Dangers Of Current E-Voting Machines
from the where's-the-reliability? dept
It looks like the message is finally getting out about the problems of current e-voting systems. As California is looking to get rid of the unreliable machines, Ireland is now making noises about banning the machines as well. It’s not that anyone is against the idea of electronic voting – but that the current way it’s implemented is dreadful and raises all sorts of questions about whether or not your vote is actually being counted. Apparently, in Ireland, the Prime Minister has been pushing for such electronic voting for a while, but a commission is now recommending not to use the machines in their current form.
