Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
"Many voting machines rely on Windows 2000 software which has not had a security update from Microsoft since 2010. A known bug in the voting machine software causes votes to be read but not be counted. Some voting jurisdictions have fixed the problem and others have not. In Election Attitude, I recommend a voting solution using mobile devices, the Internet, and blockchain technology. The solution is not in place yet, but many believe a secure, private, and verifiable system can be built. Anti-Internet voting activists believe Internet voting is a bad solution. They compare Internet voting to a perfect system we will never have instead of comparing it to what Businessweek called a 'Crappy, Buggy, and Obsolete' voting system."
