Some Voters Skeptical of E - Voting Systems
http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/technology/AP-Recall-El...

With a sigh, Charles Coffey slapped a red, white and blue ``I voted today'' sticker on his T-shirt after voting at a firehouse. He wasn't sure, though, whether his computer-cast ballot counted. Though he had no evidence, Coffey was suspicious that the touch-screen voting computer could have been rigged to vote ``yes'' on the recall while recording the Democrat as voting for Republican winner Arnold Schwarzenegger.

``I have no confidence at all in electronic voting,'' the 54-year-old real estate investor said. ``I have no confidence in any voting system after what happened in Florida.''


Distrust grows.

1. Yes! The skepticism spreads!
Even in my hometown newspaper yesterday, I noticed an article about the unreliability of BBV.
