New Zogby Poll On Electronic Voting Attitudes

At a stunning rate of 92%, Americans insist on the right to watch their votes being counted. And, at an overwhelming 80%, they strongly object to the use of secret computer software to tabulate votes without citizen access to that software.

I think it's interesting to note that people seem to be quite adamant about their right to vote securely in a transparent process, however that is a sharp contrast to what we're hearing from out government agencies that are involved with voting systems. They've bought proprietary systems with inadequate security, and then when citizens ask questions about the process, the door is slammed in their faces.

That's not what people want, and it's certainly not in line with the guarantees of free, fair and transparent elections.

More on this subject later.....
