Meadville officials say their iVotronic touch-screen voting machines work perfectly, but the NYT thinks otherwise:
Given the concerns about the lack of a paper trail on the iVotronics, why [not] instead buy a machine that produces a paper record? Because Pennsylvania state law will not permit any machine that would theoretically make it possible to figure out how someone voted. . . As a result, nearly 40 percent of Pennsylvania’s counties bought iVotronics. . . Among election-machine observers, this provokes a shudder of anticipation. If the presidential vote is close, it could well come down to a recount in Pennsylvania. And a recount could uncover thousands of votes recorded on machines that displayed aberrant behavior — with no paper trail. Would the public accept it? Would the candidates? As Candice Hoke, the head of Ohio’s Center for Election Integrity, puts it: “If it was Florida in 2000 and Ohio in 2004, everyone is saying it’s going to be Pennsylvania in 2008.”
