I have it on good authority that the ACLU national's position, at least
internally, is that punch cards must go but they do not recommend any
particular replacement technology. that is they are not pro touch
screen, though privately they may tell you that voter supression is a
bigger issue than voting technology and touch screens might reduce vote
supression if they are accessible. So any place where there is no
alternative to punchcards is going to be ripe for ACLU ire. its not
inconsistent with the CA ACLU position since there there are no punch
cards in CA. In NM, they wont take a stand (yet) against touchscreens
since they dont want to raise that issue above others.
