37. Fraud AND Greed
Fraud is not the only possible reason for pushing electronic voting -- how about GREED? Badly designed and poorly implemented programs are CHEAPER than good ones. I can undercut anyone's bid if you don't insist that the system actually work!

Fraud may not be the motivation behind the electronic voting scam. But the unverifiable proprietary systems we have certainly facilitate it.
