Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org Over the past week the media and the blogs have been filled with articles in support of a report negative on voter-verified paper audit trail requirements. Though the articles have found fault with parts of the report from the new on the scene Information Technology and Innovation Foundation they all agree on one thing; more technology added on to DRE voting machines is good and vvpat is bad. This new think-tank, ITIF, wants more software and gimmicks to be added to the present DREs. They say it will make the machines verifiable. In fact, it's nothing more than software and gimmicks. It's more expense for the counties who must pay more for licensing, updates, bug repairs, certification costs, etc. I have an innovation. Let's recycle the DREs, use paper-ballots, and let the fine folks at ITIF think about how they can improve some other aspect of our lives like the long waits at the airport or global warming. This all makes the ITIF today's "Enemy of Democracy" award winner....
