Product Development Manager at Election Systems and Software (ES&S)
Pro to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
"I really feel that public misconception of the use of voting machines in elections and therefore their distrust of elections is as big a problem as attempting to improve the standards to improve voting system security... Somehow we need to reverse this public perception to reflect the reality that elections are conducted correctly, but do have occasional human error issues, and restore confidence in the elections process."
