4. Translation of first paragraph
Democracy at your fingertips?

The computer voice delivers the results of the election. Following the request of the Frankfurt software specialists Ullrich Wiesner, Elections in the future, will not use touch screen or computerized systems. His lawyer, Hamburger Professor Ulrich Carp, said the reasons for this not using touch screen or computerized systems to control elections is that "We are not sure exactly how or if it is possible to manipulate the computerized systems, but we actually believe it is likely that the systems can be manipulated. Since the possibility of interference in the electoral process exists we cannot use such devices because the German Constitution, in Article 38 expressly provides that all elections will be free, equal, secret and, above all, open to public inspection and verification."
