Internet Voting in 2004


This Boston.com article talks about the Secure Electronic Registration and Voting Experiment being run by the Pentagon which will allow thousands of military personnel and overseas civilians to vote in the 2004 election. Certain overseas residents of South Carolina and Hawaii and those in a handful of counties in Arkansas, Florida, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Utah and Washington will be able to participate. Of course, like any issue, this one has its fans and its critics. Critics are mostly concerned about security and that's nothing to treat lightly. I don't understand the specifics enough to pass judgment. The project has a web site if you're interested.
