Bev Conover Biography

Title:
Editor and Publisher of The Online Journal
Position:
Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
Reasoning:

“Just like oil and water, computers and voting don’t mix. And that includes touch screens, optically-scanned ballots, even punch cards that are tabulated by computers. Worse, the voting equipment is in the hands of partisan private firms and they deny you the right to see the code, claiming it is proprietary information.”
