Sens Cole, Chucky Hansen, and Clarence Payne just voted to continue manipulating elections by introducing machines that provide no voter verifiable paper audit trails that the HAVA Act requires. Please cause your senators and protest. Call deJongh and ask him not to sign this bill.

The measure sponsored by Sen. Donald Cole mandates “beginning with the 2014 primary election and all election elections (sic) thereafter, the Joint Boards of Election shall adopt for use as the primary voting system in the Virgin Islands direct recording electronic voting machines.” It defines the acceptable type of machine as one which “records votes by means of a ballot display provided with mechanical or electro-optical components that can be actuated by the voter,” and that produces a “voter-verified paper audit trail.”

I guess it's not a requirement to actually read the decision before posting! For those interested (and before barraging the Governor and the senators with concerns) here's the Source report:

The machine that he has been touting which the senate did not report has internet access and access to the other machines which leads to errors that will leave a voter with the onus to point out the errors.

So what do you suggest as educated options, bearing in mind that issues with electronic voting machines aren't by any means confined to the USVI?
