The troops who put their life on the line for their country can't vote because they are away from homeland after a decision made by the DoD
How about Internet voting...you might ask!
The Pentagon has decided to scrap plans for an on-line Internet voting system for U.S. military personnel and Americans living abroad. The system
had come under fire from experts who said it could be vulnerable to computer attacks.
The decision to cancel the computer-voting project was made by Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz.
Pentagon says No.
The excuse for abandoning Internet voting was the weaknesses in the system could jeopardize voter privacy and allow votes to be altered and even
election results to be tampered with. They said there were far too many opportunities for hackers or even terrorists to interfere with fair and
accurate voting...so they babble.
I am totally against it because if we look from this point, then even having Internet is a weakness.
What do you guys think?
