60. MAINE - this is looking really bad for EVoting

Kerry exit polls up 7.5%

Kerry leads actual results by 8%

Exit poll results match actual!

If you guessed that Maine has no EVoting systems you are CORRECT!

They legislated that any EVoting machines purchased and used must have paper audit trails.


April 15, 2004

AUGUSTA-Working to ensure accurate voting as a basic and guaranteed right, the Maine Legislature Tuesday passed a bill requiring electronic voting machines to provide a paper receipt of a voters ballot that can be verified by the voter. The bill has been sent to Governor Baldacci for his approval, which is expected.

Currently, no voting precincts in Maine use electronic voting machines. This bill would require municipalities that upgrade to electronic systems in the future to buy systems that produce a voter-verifiable paper trail.
