Maryland Governor Wants Paper Ballots
I remember the paper ballot and marker system. It was very easy to use and the ballots were very large and clearly layed out.
I never understood why it was necessary to change that system. It seemed to work great. When the whole debacle with the 2000 election in Florida happened, my first thought was that they should switch to the system that we have in MD.
The Diebold machines aren't any easier to use and given all the problems that have been discovered with them it seems that it was simply a waste of tax-payer money.
