Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
"In November 2004 as many as 50 million voters voted on electronic voting machines with no voter verified paper trail. The accuracy of the vote count in those instances can never be confirmed, and there was enough distrust of November's election results that a challenge to the certificate of the electoral votes from Ohio was launched, heard and voted upon in Congress before the 2004 election was ratified."
