ABSTRACT
This article reports on the introduction of electronic voting machines in the United States. The author writes about instances of voting irregularities, such as the negative votes that Al Gore received from a county in Florida in the 2000 election, and reports about voting machines being tampered with, and since the machines are not inspected because it would break "trade secrets," there is no transparency in counting. The author then comments on the plans developing in the United Kingdom about e-voting.
