Former Director of Bureau of Elections at State of New Mexico
Pro to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
"New Mexico began its transition from lever voting machines in the 1980s. We have successfully used first generation DREs in many elections over the years. We have conducted recounts recognized by the courts in our state and found the systems to be reliable and sound. The systems are completely accepted by voters."
