Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
"There has been much said and written about the security, or lack of security, of new voting technologies. This is a legitimate issue, and voters rightfully will be concerned that their votes on these machines will be accurately cast and counted, and not be subject to computer bugs or hacking. However, there is also great peril that has resulted from the electronic voting machine backlash - the continued use in key states of punch-card ballot machines."
