Now doesn't this just instill you with confidence in our new fangled voting system?. Kind of makes me long for the days of the hanging chad. Wired had it right a few years ago when they published a back page "relics of the future" shot that had a validated voting receipt indicating when, where and who you voted for. Any system without a paper trail is setting itself up for disaster; any system that lacks a paper trail and transparency in its operation (as is the case with Diebold) is looking at a voting apocalypse.
