Politics, Technology, and Language

E-voting can’t be recounted – this shouldn’t be news, but it is

Posted by metaphorical on 12 November 2006

Perhaps the media is ready to stop pretending that elections run with today’s e-voting equipment can be recounted.

I blogged about this at work, so I’ll just point to it there.

  1. Do I win a prize for the first comment?

    I normally loath conspiracy theorizing but the electronic voting machine shenanigans are making me reconsider that prejudice.

    Good blogging.

  2. Yes, as a matter of fact, it’s the first comment here ever. Your t-shirt and mug are already in the mail.

    If you want to get truly paranoid, keep in mind that besides the machines that substitute for ballots on election day, there’s the registration databases that determine who gets to vote in the first place. I had an article about them last month here
