Quote of the day

Filed under: Black-box voting,Quote Of The Day — Lex @ 10:09 pm

From commenter “clevershark” at Metafilter: “Yesterday we in Canada voted using the time-tested technologies of pencil and paper. Today we know who won the election. We know by how much. There is no dispute whatsoever. There may be a message in that.”

Ya think?

(To clarify: I don’t think all ballots should be pencil and paper. I do, however, believe touch-screen electronic machines are insecure and subject to unacceptable failure rates, and that if they are used they should generate a voter-verified paper ballot and that a robust auditing system be in place.)
