More on the Dangers of eVoting

More on the Dangers of eVoting:

Slashdot points to a scholarly article out of Yale which makes the case that "Small vote manipulations can swing elections" (registration required)

""This emphasizes the importance of a voter-verified audit trail as protection against this sort of pervasive, subtle manipulation. To guard against such an attack, the correspondence between each voter's intentions and the tally reported by the system must be made absolute by such means as the Mercuri method [8], where each voter personally verifies a machine-produced paper ballot that is then counted by machine in a reliable, repeatable manner, but can nonetheless still be counted manually.""

I'm sure there's be a chapter on this in John Fund's next edition of 'Stealing Elections' (Amazon)
