Wired News Story Focusing on Fears Regarding Electronic Voting

More "Future Shock" regarding the new electronic voting machines. By the previous sentence don't think that I am a blind advocate of e-voting, I think there are some issues to resolve which should have been thought of in advance. You know little things like voter verfied paper backups. It isn't like these machines are EMP hardened or anything. What if a thunderstorm hits, etc.? Or fraud? You know the jest, but I do think a lot of the fears are neo-luddite panic about new technology, combined with a "botched" election in 2000"
