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.

We (The Netherlands) have gone back to paper voting because of the machines having security issues.


We (Australia) still use paper voting because we have no electricity.

Yep! We also use pencils because we don't have pens.

LOL! Thanks for the levity in a ridiculous thread (no electricity, no pens). Thom... paper ballots are good... we use paper with optical scanning in AZ which works well enough. They use the "connect the line" method... so as long as you can connect the dots you are good.
