Voters league backtracks on e-voting

The League of Women Voters drops its endorsement of electronic voting machines that lack a paper audit trail.

The League of Women Voters has dropped its endorsement of electronic voting machines that lack a paper audit trail. Such machines are now considered vulnerable to hackers or software glitches. At a convention this week in Washington, D.C., league delegates voted for a resolution backing "voting systems and procedures that are secure, accurate, recountable and accessible."

The vote is a rebuke to the national leadership of the 130,000-member organization, who had dismissed the and touted paperless voting machines as an improvement over punched card devices. Some of its more tech-savvy members had been pressing for the league to change its position, arguing that a paper trail was necessary for accurate recounts.
