Associate Research Professor at Carnegie Mellon University
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
"I tend to think that with sufficient review and oversight, we should be able to deploy DRE machines that have a very low risk of failure (through either accidental error or fraud). I don't think we can build a perfect machine, but we should be able to build a machine with risks lower than the risks associated with a paper ballot system. I do not know enough about existing DRE systems to know whether any of them are good enough today, but have heard about enough problems to be suspicious."
