Richard L. Hasen, PhD Biography

Title:
Chancellor's Professor of Law and Political Science at University of California at Irvine
Position:
Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
Reasoning:

“The point is not that electronic voting is the best system; maybe it should be scrapped. The real solution is to create a cadre of dedicated, professional nonpartisan administrators with enough money to run a scrupulously fair and voter-friendly system of election administration to resolve such questions.”
