The German Constitutional Court has declared electronic
voting machines too insecure for use in Germany. They
are unconstitutional.

Unfortunately these articles are in German, and
I just don't have time this morning for reading and
translating all the details, but one headline reads :
"Comeback for Paper and Pencil"

Here's a summary in German.

"Der Einsatz von Abstimmcomputern bei der Bundestagswahl warlaut
Verfassungsgericht grundgesetzwidrig - die bisherigen Maschinen sind einfach zu unsicher."

Maybe someone will be able to Google up some articles in English.
