Former President of the League of Women Voters of the United States
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
"At the 2004 Convention, the League determined that in order to ensure integrity and voter confidence in elections, the League of Women Voters of the United States (LWVUS) supports the implementation of voting systems and procedures that are secure, accurate, recountable, and accessible. The LWVUS neither supports nor opposes any specific type of voting technology and supports technical innovations."

"DREs bring significant advantages to our election system, including improved access for persons with disabilities or limited English proficiency; voter verification of ballots, including 'second chance' voting in private; safeguards against 'overvoting;' consistent and accurate counting of votes; and paper records for authentication, recounts, and audits."
