I don't have a preference as long as the voters know how to use them. No hanging chads people. :)

"We're sorry. This video is no longer available."

Is that an electronic voting machine joke? :smoke:

Video isn't available, is that one that shows McCain winning? I'm more concerned about illegals, criminals & dead people voting. RI has a good system, voters join 2 arrows together next to the candidate on a ballot & scan it in the voting machine.

Do search for voting machine on you tube. Must be the men in "Black Coats" don't want anyone to see it... It's a conspiracy I tell you.

That came out about year ago, that is one of the reasons the rush to computers was such a bad thing. It forced the hand of too many voting districts, granted the chad was a fiasco but these electronic voting machines forced on the public are so much more of a fiasco. If you take our County for example they had those steal behemoths from back in the early part of the century, there was never any complaints as to their accuracy. They were working practically flawlessly for almost a century but now we have electronic voting machines, machines I might add that cost something like 3 or 4 million to buy and come with a year warranty... :roll:

Actually, second; Rutherford B. Hayes in, IIRC, 1876, was the first.

I stand corrected. (I'll have to check my history but I wonder if Hayes's Presidency was a dismal failure like GW's?)

I worked for the Kerry voter protection effort in Broward Co. FL in 2004. Paperless "ATM-style" machines manufactured by Diebold. All sorts of fear of hacking/rigging risk -- but with no paper anywhere, how ya gonna prove it?

I've always liked the lever-type "Jamestown" machines we've had here in NY for a very long time. Something comforting knowing that a cam is turning a mechanical tumbler when you pull the lever. But, because of the req'ts of HAVA ("Help America Vote Act") regarding disabled voting, NY will be phasing in new OCR machines this fall. Back to the future: voters will vote a paper ballot, which will stand as backup after being scanned into the OCR machine, which will upload the data to the Board of Elections.
