Anthony Wing Kosner Biography

Title:
Forbes Contributor
Position:
Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
Reasoning:

“But why are we expending so much effort on the fine points of the new iPhone when our elections are being conducted on the equivalent of ancient feature phones? Shouldn’t it be in both parties’ interest to asure [sic] the trust of the electorate in this process—especially after what happened in 2004. The fact that we are going into this election with such archaic and vulnerable systems, the fact that if there are problems we will not have a reliable way to debug them, is deeply troubling.”
