An anonymous reader writes: The german Supreme Court has just declared the use of voting machines during the last elections unconstitutional. The decision does not prohibit voting machines per se, but defines strong requirements for transparency and accountability in the future use of these machines. It is thought that in the upcoming State-elections, authorities will have to revert to paper and pencil voting. Spiegel-online also carries the story.
