After the past two presidential elections, it’s easy to see why Florida Gov. Charlie Crist wants to ditch electronic voting machines in favor of paper-based ballots. Crist notes that the 2000 race specifically was a wake up call that something needed to be done to fix the problems associated with voting electronically.

He will be asking Florida legislature for $20 million in funding to switch to a paper-based machine so that proper records are ensured. With the reliability of Diebold nowadays, perhaps regressing technologically is the best move.
