Ohio moves to block e-voting
The State of Ohio moved to block deployment of e-voting machines last week. The move follows the release of a report [pdf] commissioned by the Secretary of State that revealed serious security flaws. Wired News reports ("Ohio Halts E-Voting Machines") that "some of Ohio's 88 counties still will be using punch-card systems for the 2004 election." Unfortunately, there seems to be no viable alternative.
