American Conservative Union Foundation
Transferring Conservitism to the Next Generation
 E-Voting Fraud?
by Jill S. Farrell

The Free Congress Foundation is an educational foundation with
conservative roots and an extensive history of encouraging
citizens to become effectively involved in the political
process. Although we are generally in favor of voter-verifiable
paper-ballot systems, we see this issue as one of voter
confidence.
...
If securing accurate results is the goal of every election
official, the audit process that verifies election results needs
to start with a legitimate paper trail of voter intent. As in
Nevada, with their touch-less voter-verifiable ballot, guarding
the custody of these ballots runs a close second in the audit
process. Precinct-level results should be posted for at least 30
days and recorded for later comparison to central tabulation
results (to insure against tampering either location).
Ballot-less DREs simply cannot offer these important safeguards.
