Next week, 4 out of 5 voters across America will use touch-screen machines or optical scanners to cast their ballots. More than one-third of the
electorate will vote electronically for the first time, raising questions about whether voters, machines, and poll workers are up to the task.
After the disputed 2000 Presidential election and Florida’s infamous “hanging chad” punch-card recount, the federal government allocated $3
billion to help states buy new voting machines and created the Election Assistance Commission to oversee the sweeping change.
IMO this is a waste of money, and we have become way too reliant on technology now more than ever.
