Voting system nothing to bank on - News Columnists

Columnist Ellis Henican asks why voting with electronic machines can't be as easy and reliable as using an ATM. What a great point! I am truly a child of my generation--more comfortable accessing my money through an ATM or the internet than with an actual bank teller. Why can't voting be this secure and easy? Because there are no huge companies driving innovations in secure voting methods/alternatives. Sometimes there are flaws with the capitalist system.

And lets not forget that ATMs give you a receipt. At the least, they give you the OPTION for a receipt. But have you read some of the articles about ways people bugger up ATMs? Some are wickedly ingenious...and all we're talking about there is money.
