There were reports of electronic machines switching votes last week because the machines weren't correctly calibrated. Given the problems people have had with the computerized voting machines, some states are returning to the tried and true voting method – paper ballots. This lead to the headline at Ars Technica of "Paper Ballot: The New Killer App. "
I do wonder why we can't have some uniform voting ballot system wherein a state can opt out as long as they prove that they have a superior method that has greater safe guards to protect a person's vote. There's little that can go wrong with the No. 2 pencil, right?
