Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
Reasoning:

“We assume for purposes of our analysis that the target jurisdictions own certified DRE voting systems… Accordingly, these recommendations should not be seen as an endorsement or indictment of such systems or their use. A full analysis of the benefits and pitfalls of DREs and other voting systems remains necessary.”
