Why cant Electronic ballots produce a paper trail?
    #3319138 - 11/04/04 11:39 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

You buy groceries, you get a receipt and it goes into the stores records. Its bullshit that the electronic voting machines cant have a paper trail. something smells fishy to me.

Actually, they can produce a paper trail. Of course, only one state uses that electronic voting system and it is Nevada. I dont know why the other states dont use the same paper trail electronic voting system.

Two good reasons:
1)it will increase the price of the system
2)it will vastly increase the failure rate of machines - a printer is ALOT more likely to jam than a touchscreen machine which only stores information electronically is to fail

However, the security and trustworthiness of our vote is pretty damn important. The Diebold machines are shit, and shouldn't be used.

how about the "fill in the bubble with the pen and then put it into the locked box" voting system? or is that too technologically advanced for Jesusland?

Constitution.


--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

There is a clearly spelled out process for amending the constitution.

Good luck getting it done.
