Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
"We're now in an age of vote counting done by corporate trade secret software. This makes elections the secret, private property of the corporation chosen by the government officials who 'won' the last election. With this secret vote counting, nobody can prove the totals correct, and the public can't even peek... Demonstrations on Diebold voting machines earlier this year indicate that all classes of electronic voting can be hacked without detection."
"The Jesse James Principle: Verifiable Ballot Counts Would Stop Freefall of Public Confidence," Real Change News, June 1, 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.]
