Voter Action Biography

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

“High numbers of vote switching incidents (a vote switch occurs when a voter selects one candidate but another choice appears on the screen of an electronic voting machine) and massive vote loss were also linked to specific brands and models of voting machines, mirroring other widely reported incidents across the nation. In fact, most ballots cast across our country are recorded and tabulated using secret, proprietary software with no substantial or meaningful independent testing or review process.”
