1. Just like our virus protection programs have to constantly
be updated, and most times after a new virus is released, what do you all think would have to happen to those electronic voting machines. And just think. Each little old district would have to be constantly updated and checked. The task would be unsurmountable. It could not be done. There has to be a way to make them fail safe.

someone said that the ATM machines run by the banks, can't be hacked why can't they make the voting machines safe. the only ATM machines which are programmed to be crooked are the private ones. Some time ago a company in India said that they could produce voting machines similar to ATM for under 200 or 300 dollars each and that these machines would produce a paper trail and could not be hacked. You never heard anything else about them. BECAUSE THEY WOULD WORK.
