Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
"Existing e-voting systems easily might be subverted by their vendors, or their faults used by others to cheat. To put our heads in the sand does not solve the problem, but permits it to fester, to our republic's peril. We must face the problem squarely, with the full array of intelligence, wisdom, and humility at our command."
