Liberty and Accessibility

Some people think that the best way to deal with voting machine problems in US elections is to have paper ballots in all elections. I disagree. The way to deal with voting machine problems is to use voting machines that use open source software. With open source software, any programmer can look at the software to see how it works. For example, if a voting machine had a bug in it's software that caused democratic votes to turn into republican votes, programmers could find that bug and it would be exposed. As a blind person, I strongly believe in the use of electronic voting machines. Voting machines have software that speaks election choices and selections so we can vote independantly. More information about open source software can be found here or here
