PC Voting

If you’re an absentee resident of South Carolina and Hawaii, or a few counties in Arkansas, Florida, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Utah and Washington, then you will have the option of voting from a computer in the 2004 election.

The Secure Electronic Registration and Voting Experiment, which began as a tiny demonstration project in the 2000 general election and involved just 84 voters, could give 100,000 voters the chance to cast absentee ballots online in next year’s presidential primaries and general election.

It’s run by the Pentagon.

The entire idea leaves me feeling queasy. Thoughts of voter purging are still too fresh to even consider this proposal.

  1. Thanks for the link and you’re right. Without a paper trail the door is wide open to abuse.

    It would make more sense to give the troops and other citizens living overseas more time to get their votes in than to create a system that could afford an opportunity to purge the votes unwelcomed by the people running the program.
