Lawmakers Contemplate Paper Trail

Posted by pbsweeney on October 30, 2006

Catching up on our reading:

The Washington Post reports that “a computer glitch that alters the names of some candidates on electronic ballots in three Virginia cities helps prove the need to create a paper record of each vote cast, two state lawmakers said yesterday.” Read the whole story here… Applause to Virgina for waking up to smell the coffee about the voting debacle that is about to descend upon us. Applause too for our own County Executive Steve Levy on this issue, wherein Suffolk County is suing the State of New York, claiming that Suff. Co. residents are being forced to pay millions for electronic voting machines that we neither need nor want, all because of the way the State Legislature interpreted the new federal voting law. On this one, we gotta say – Go Steve!
