I am glad that SD is going back to paper for now. They have some issues that still need to be resolved with these voting machines.

Although eletronic voting system isnt the Wonderland, i think that it can be used "safelly" (comparing with paper safety).
BTW, here elections are 100% eletronic thru voting machines. And here is damn hot, comparing with yours....
