I, Rebut

At some point in the future, some form of voting via the Internet will probably be the norm. But electronic voting machine technology ain't ready for prime time yet. Current generation systems mostly lack any sort of mechanism to allow verification/validation of votes, or to perform any sort of recount. The first Mayor Daley would have loved them. Lots of modern politicos seem to too.

To highlight this problem, Verified Voting, a nonprofit devoted to fighting paperless electronic voting machines is sponsoring a national "Computer Ate My Vote" protest on July 13. See their protest site for more details.
