This is one of many reasons why I do not trust computerized voting machines.

Scantrons are the best balance we have right now. It's what we had here in San Diego until this upcoming election. If we get the choice, I will use them still. If I don't get the choice, I may go to the registrar of voters (less than 2 miles from my house) and vote on paper there.

If we had a voting system with open source cryptographically signed software, with secure results storage, and a verifiable paper trail, then I wouldn't be so worried.

Well, I was more worried about bugs/basic file corruption and things like that...but this has a pretty nasty smell to it.

Definitely though, since FL, I've thought not having paper was a huge mistake.

Hell, if we're not going to have paper, let's just vote through the friggin' web.
