Submission + - Netherlands set to abandon electronic voting

sniggly writes: While Estonia is embracing electronic voting, a committee in the Netherlands is recommending the red pencil. The government is likely to act on the recommendations because of the machines' record of questionable realibility and the inability to independently verify results. The company responsible for most machines was recently caught pimping their wikipedia entry but were unconcerned over the ban (dutch) since they had already sold their questionable equipment to 90% of election committees anyway.

Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.
