Pro to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
"Electronic voting can be made reliable with a thorough combination of design, manufacture, certification, testing and rigorous administrative and security controls. The systems must be used properly according to stated protocols. If this is done, then electronic systems are far more secure than any systems that employ physical ballots."
Testimony before the United States Commission on Civil Rights, 2004
Experts Election officials, people with post-graduate degrees in a computer or political science, JD's, Members of Congress, or elected officials with significant involvement in, or related to, electronic voting machine issues. [Note: Experts definition varies by site.]
