Here we go again


Some of the names we’ve seen involved in problems with electronic voting machines are showing up again as problems arise with electronic records of registered voters. This article from Wired explains how thousands of Americans who are legally able to vote may not get to, or may not have their votes counted, because of errors (not “glitches”) in the systems that contain names of registered voters and are supposed to match them against drivers-license or Social Security records.

Folks, we have all the technology we need to run accurate elections with robust auditing measures to ensure that accuracy. What we lack is the will.
