Simple solution to making sure computer voting not fraudulent

Posted: Friday, March 12, 2004

Despite evidence that computer voting machines are vulnerable to fraud and accidents

that could wreak havoc on election results, Congress has refused to mandate a simple solution to the computer voting problem which is that all machines produce a paper trail of ballots cast. This would allow for a recount, if needed.

So, it's left to us to make sure that our voting machines produce a paper record. California is one state that's already mandated that its computer voting machines produce a paper trial.

California is definitely not always right, but here's a case where it would be wise for us to follow its lead.
