Electronic voting

Ohio won't have any hanging chads this year because we've gone electronic. It was pretty painless, and I think the paper journal that the machines do certainly creates a comfortable enough paper trail. Heck, it's probably more cheat-proof than a stack of punch cards.

Crossing my fingers that Ohio voters aren't stupid this time around.

Two words: "Hacking Democracy".

In Hamilton County (OH) we did the "scantron" method.

There is a man made paper trail that we each fed into the scanner. Conspiracy theorist can squawk, but it makes the most sense to me.

Do they have people, like we did in kindergarten for testing, to fill in the circles that aren't completely filled in? ;)
