Editorial In the United States, state and local authorities are in charge of voting and the country uses more than a half dozen different voting technologies. As a result, the country can't guarantee that it accurately counts national votes in a timely fashion. This article discusses the problem and potential solutions to the U.S. voting dilemma.

I'd say this is a situation where real progress has/is being made, though [and not something the US is say, especially bad at]. All of the green/turquoise states in the map have "optical" voting systems: i.e. people fill out paper ballots and then a machine counts them. By randomly checking the machine's results manually, large-scale vote-counting fraud is prevented.
