Guest Blogged by John Gideon of It seems as if every year brings a new battle. This year some in state election administrations are going to be pushing internet voting as if it was a good idea. They will ignore all of the scientific evidence to the contrary. The simple fact is that the internet is a fine platform to get voting information and ballots to military and overseas voters but there is no way the internet is secure enough to allow voters to actually cast a ballot. This is not just my opinion but it was the opinion of the Dept. of Defense in 2004 when they cancelled their plans to allow the military to vote using the internet. It is also the opinion of the National Institute of Standards and Technology who recently issued a report that clearly states the internet is not yet a secure platform for voting....
