Electronic voting has earned a pretty bad reputation for being insecure and completely unreliable. Add another entry to e-voting's list of woes...Hackers Elect Futurama’s Bender to the Washington DC School Board (pcworld.com, Kevin Lee)

Voting is less secure in this country than most anyone wants to admit,

This didn't implicate "electronic voting".

I will never trust web based voting, and I am in the camp that believes there should be paper trail of every ballot that regular regular electronic voting machine should not have web capabilities.

There should also be random testing of machines after all elections with some laws available to redo elections where there is suspicions.

If I had to design a system, the voter would enter their vote on a machine which would print out a machine and voter readable sheet with a duplicate receipt maintained on a paper roll within the machine. The two would with a number the tracks each other and be untraceable to the voter. If the voter sees that the computer readable sheet represented their vote, they would place it in the poll worker would run it through the reader and then place it in a ballot box.

If the voter disagreed with the markings on the ballot sheet, they would sign a rejected ballot list at a random location and create a new ballot. The rejected ballot would have the serial number separated from the ballot and put into the ballot box in two pieces.

If there isn't any rejected ballots with an hour, the poll workers would create one to ensure that there are a few within the system so that there is no way to connect an individual rejected ballot to an individual voter.

You do understand that Premiere and Diebold machines are easier to crack than this system?
