Now some questions about voting procedures and election reform.
18. Following are three statements about electronic voting. Please tell me which statement comes closest to your point of
view A, B, or C?
Statement A: Electronic voting is efficient and trustworthy. It will make voting easier, count ballots quicker, and avoid the problems associated with counting paper ballots.
Statement B: Electronic voting is okay only if there is a paper trail, much like ATM machines which provide you with a printed receipt. That way voters can verify that their vote is recorded correctly and there is no risk of the electronic records being lost, hacked or manipulated with no verifiable record.
Statement C: There should be no electronic voting. We should only use voting machines which use paper ballots or old, reliable lever machines.

19. Again, which of the following statements about voting comes closer to your point of view A or B?
Statement A: Voting machines and other voting equipment or technology should be contracted out to and owned and operated by private businesses and corporations. It would save the taxpayers money and would be more efficient.
Statement B: Voting machines and other voting equipment or technology should be owned and operated by state and municipal entities. This would ensure that people from both or all political parties are involved in the process, cutting down on the possibility of voting
