E-Voting Machines Again?
Here is the link to the article. Basically most states are or will be switching to E-Voting. The problem is that anything on a network can and will be hacked. I personally do not think this a good idea. The only way it would be even close to a good idea is if they were completely isolated and never connected to a network in any way. There are also flaws, which I believe are exploitable using the touch-screen interface. And since it lacks monitering system (so votes remain anonymous, and I am for this) they may or may not determine who did it.
