Congress has no intention of approving electronic voting or putting any effort into finding reasonably secure options. Were they to do something like that their jobs suddenly become meaningless in the long run. We would have no need for elected population representatives if the population was able to vote on virtually every subject themselves. Of course then it would become a partisan issue because we would have to give a computer to every single low-income family (government funded through your tax dollars) or we would be discriminating. Republicans wouldn't want that because it would take away their advantage. How do you pass something that no elected official truly wants passed? There is alot more involved to e-voting than just the security concerns. I wonder what circumstances it would take to get it to truly happen.

If I have not seen as far as others, it is because giants were standing on my shoulders. -- Hal Abelson
