There are no 100% trustworthy electronic voting systems.
We must throw out the electronic machines and go to a paper only model, like they have in Canada and Switzerland. Nothing less will do for making the vote 100% voter verifiable, recountable and trustworthy.
Yes, this will mean throwing away billions of dollars worth of equipment. Ironically, it will probably have zero re-sale value. There are no businesses that would invest a penny in these worthless hunks of hardware.
Once they are thrown away, the advocates of these machines should be exposed for what they are-- either betrayers of democracy, dupes or fools. And they should all be voted out of office or, if appointed, as in secretaries of state, then fired.
I've based my position on conversations with leaders in the field of voting integrity. There are computer experts who still support the idea of "safe" electronic voting. Some of them make their livings consulting or designing in the electronic voting business.
But I've spoken with enough experts to believe that there is no way, absolutely no way to be sure, to be 100% confident in electronic voting results, even when a paper record is produced.
The answer is simple. Throw out all the machines and go to paper ballots.
We can do it right away. We should make it a federal law that all elections are carried out this way. Democracy deserves the best, and when it comes to voting, that means paper.
All the election integrity organizations and activists have to bite the bullet and face the truth. Anything less than trashing the machines and returning to paper is a compromise that settles for less than the best form of voting that serve democracy. I call for all voting integrity activists and organizations to join together in an effort to get congress to pass legislation to require the elimination of voting machines in all government elections. The citizens of the US, and every state, county and municipality deserve the best for democracy.
