Registrar of Voters of San Diego County (California)
Pro to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
"Although San Diego, like many other California counties, only used touch screen voting to meet the 2002 Help America Vote Act requirement for disabled-accessible voting, the county plans to be all-electronic for the November election... Counties choose touch screens for a reason. We have ballots in four languages and many versions of an increasingly complicated ballot. You can't tell me that doesn't call out for a computerized solution."
From an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle, Jun. 19, 2006
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.]
