Govt Exec. News: "Debate over e-voting is still plaguing elections"
Govt Executive News is a daily newsletter for government professionals.

This is the first time I have seen them write anything about the
electronic voting issue, and they also quoted Cynthia McKinney in
their article.




Debate over e-voting is still plaguing elections


Debate over e-voting is still plaguing elections
By Winter Casey, National Journal's Technology Daily

When George W. Bush was elected president in 2000 amid controversy
over paper ballots, the nation quickly moved toward electronic voting systems.
Ever since then, the controversy has focused on e-voting, and the
battle shows no signs of receding this year.

Complaints surfaced anew Tuesday in Georgia, where Rep. Cynthia McKinney
was soundly defeated in a Democratic primary. Any e-voting problems
that might have existed would not have changed the outcome of the race,
but McKinney still decried the technology.


"Electronic voting machines are a threat to our democracy,"
she said in a post-election rally.
"So let the word go out:
We aren't going to tolerate any more stolen elections...."
