Congress Wakes Up To E-Voting Problems

from the oh,-maybe-there's-a-problem... dept

After all the ongoing talk about problems with current electronic voting machines, it seems folks in Congress have finally realized that there might just be a problem with the machines. They’ve asked the General Accounting Office to look into the security and reliability of the machines. If past (non-industry sponsored) research into the topic is any indication, they’ll find plenty of problems with the existing machines. Of course, the industry is likely to complain again that people are trying to hold back progress – which is ridiculous. No one wants to stop electronic voting machines entirely. They just want to make sure the systems that are being used are recording votes properly.
