$7.5M Awarded to Study Electronic Voting
Tue Aug 16, 1:03 PM ET

BALTIMORE - Armed with a $7.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation, Johns Hopkins University is leading a new effort to improve the reliability of electronic voting machines.

The project's goal is to design the most foolproof, transparent voting system possible, officials said Monday.

"I don't think with today's technology we can have a voting system that is fully electronic that can be trusted," said Avi Rubin, a computer science professor. He will head a new Hopkins center called ACCURATE, short for A Center for Correct, Usable, Reliable, Auditable and Transparent Elections.

Rubin told The (Baltimore) Sun he hopes the center will provide information in time for the 2008 presidential contest, but that its research will take longer.

4. It is good news.
But remember, this is Science and like Democrats, Science is on the ropes at the moment!

And once the system has been proposed, how long will it take to implement it, who will pay for it, legislate it, etc.

Somehow, I don't think they'll suggest hand counted paper ballots.

Still good news though.
