Finally some good news about electronic voting. Reuters reports that Nevada will use voting machines that will leave a paper trail.
I find it amusing that this voting system gets a seal of approval from Nevada's gaming industry.
Nevada Secretary of State Dean Heller said he hoped his state would set an example by using touch-screen voting machines equipped with printers and avoid a repeat of the 2000 presidential election debacle.
The disputed 2000 election led many states to move from punch cards to electronic voting systems. But computer experts have warned that some of the systems are vulnerable to hacking, fraud and malfunctions.

Nevada's huge gambling industry relies on audit controls trusted by gamblers. The state's Gaming Control Board's Electronic Services Division, which is responsible for verifying the security of electronic gambling machines, has reviewed the new voting system and declared it secure.
Hopefully Sequoia Voting Systems receipt system will be better than the Diebold electronic voting machines purchased by many states.
