Warren Stewart Biography

Title:
Policy Director - Editor of VoteTrustUSA.org
Position:
Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
Reasoning:

“Many states have already come to the conclusion that a paper ballot voting system – with ballots either counted by hand or with optical scanners – is not only more accurate and reliable but it is also significantly less expensive… innovative ballot-marking devices and other systems have allowed 17 entire states and jurisdictions in another 16 states to retain paper ballot systems while still providing voters with disabilities and language minority voters with the opportunity to cast their votes privately and independently.”
