No Electronic Voting for Florida

February 2, 2007

I think this is good news:

The New York Times leads with news that Florida will probably say goodbye to touch-screen voting machines and replace them with paper ballots that will be counted by scanning machines in time for the 2008 presidential election.

Electronic voting without a paper trail is not considered credible, which seems to me to be the most important component of a good vote counting method.
