Internet voting has been described as 'DREs on steroids.'

Apparently the internet is wide open to a lot more attacks than so-called closed systems running in a county election office. Then, of course, with internet voting you are turning the private hardware and software of every voter using the system into a voting machine, along with whatever virus or malware it might contain.

Internet voting is very seductive to officials who see it as cheaper and easier for themselves.

Right now the vendors are pushing internet voting hard as a way to improve voting opportunities for far-flung military and the disabled; am sure that soon there will be a shift to touting it as "better" for all voters.

We must nip all this in the bud.
