Netherlands bans e-voting

Glyn sez, "The Netherlands government has banned the use of electronic voting machines in future elections. This is an impressive victory by the Dutch campaigning group 'We don't trust voting computers.' [Ed: now that's an activist group name that does exactly what it says on the tin!= The Ministry of Internal Affairs said "Research indicates that a secure voting machine that is immune to the risks of eavesdropping can't be guaranteed. Developing new equipment furthermore requires a large investment, both financially and in terms of organization. The administration judges that this offers insufficient added value over voting by paper and pencil,"


(Thanks, Glyn!)
