More on Electronic Voting

Friday, November 5th, 2004

I don’t really want to keep talking about the election, nobody does. I fear the problems with Electronic Voting as it exists currently will be ignored as a result. These things need to be fixed by the next time around.

Votes cast were lost in Florida and North Carolina (at least).

I’m not saying these issues changed the outcome of the big race, but it may have impacted more local races. The message it sends is, "Your vote may not count." It’s as if those people had never voted. Of course I imagine most coverage will be like this, and nothing will be done.
