Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
"The reliability of Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) voting equipment is so poor, and the likelihood of undetectable, unrecoverable change or loss of entered votes so great that the uncertainty (due to statistical sampling) in a pre-election poll or exit poll of 1000 people is far superior to the uncertainty (due to machine unreliability) in tabulated votes on election day."
"Statement for Election Assessment Hearing," June 29, 2005
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.]
