    I don't know enough to be able to weigh in on that point from a technical and security standpoint. Certainly I can say it would be preferable to have open source code and a non-partisan organization of some sort running e-voting...if we have to have e-voting.

    But that wouldn't address the issues of equipment failures, electricity reliability, pollworker training, and simply, "Ooops! forgot to get machines to that Dem stronghold" problems we've been seeing.

    People have to perceive that the method of voting is fair and accurate. Will that be possible now that the rethugs and their fascist partner e-voting corporations have done this for the past 5 years?

    There are amazing smart and talented programmers out there, so I do believe the security problems could be fixed. But technology rarely efficiently solves political problems and we have as big a political problem when it comes to fair and accurate elections as we do a technical one.
