Nathaniel Polish, PhD Biography

Title:
President and Owner of Daedalus Technology Group
Position:
Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
Reasoning:

“Computer based voting is a real problem. If it is not completely open source with code open for public inspection and comment, this is can not [sic] be a valid way to collect votes. Period. There is really no room for room for compromise on this. Elections done electronically with proprietary systems will always be suspect.”
