Dutch Gov't Pulls The Plug On E-Voting (For Now)
from the did-they-vote-on-that? dept
While the US is still trying to figure out what to do about problematic e-voting machines, over in the Netherlands, they’ve apparently decided to ditch the machines (or, at least, ditching the regulation approving the machines), at least until they’ve figured out a way to make them more reliable, secure and trustworthy. Sounds like a reasonable plan, though it sounds like they may be looking to bring the machines back rather quickly, with just a paper trail — which may not be enough. At some point people need to realize that many of these machines can’t be retrofitted to fix things, but need to be rethought from the ground up.
