Proof (links) needed
Does anyone have links to explicitly show that conservatives or any nonliberals are deeply concerned about BBV or any electronic voting systems? I just need them to counteract arguments that anti-BBVs are not due to "crybabies" from the liberal/Democratic crowd.

1. The gop has no need nor want for honest elections it seems. There is nary
a conservative anywhere who has expressed one IOTA of concern that our constitution has been shat upon by THEIR party, in their endeavor to acquire as much money and power as possible.

2. Lou Dobbs good enough?
I'm quite sure that a few of the old-cons have expressed concern over e-voting, but can't think of names of the top of my head, apart from Lou Dobbs (he still counts as a repub right?), who had in Lou Dobbs Tonight on February 17, 2004.

Link for transcript is:

http://www.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0402/17/ldt.00.html

Just search that page for e-voting and read the transcript

If I think of more I'll post back.

3. Well look what Google found

Well look what Google found, seems that the freepers themselves are having problems with this:

E-voting -- Prospects and Problems

The second major weakness is that "industry standard components" are exempt. This encourages vendors to use off-the-shelf software, and on the face of it, this seems reasonable. Unfortunately, many industry standard components are known to be unreliable and insecure. In addition, some industry standard software is made by companies that are either in an adversary relationship with the Federal government, or may have publicly stated partisan positions in an upcoming general election.
