Voting Machines vs. OCR/OMR
Yet another in the litany of events that make me think our industry could have come up with a better solution for voting. Personally, I was a big fan of the VoteFiler system introduced a year and a half ago by Comfidex, which is a spin off from document imaging super systems specialist R2K, but haven't heard that it's gained much traction since its initial introduction. I guess their in a very tough market controlled by politicos - but when all is said and done, paper ballots a much cleaner than touchscreens.
