When you cast your ballot for Election Day 2012, there’s a good chance it will be on an electronic machine. But are these devices really trustworthy? According the experts, there might still be some reliability issues, but your e-vote today is much more secure than it was four years ago.

From CNN:

“In general terms, the nation as a whole is moving toward more resilient, more recountable, evidence-based voting systems and that’s a good thing,” said Pamela Smith, president of the Verified Voting Foundation. “We’re better off than we were a couple of election cycles ago by a long shot and we’re better off than we were in the last election, too.”
