terminology

Just trying to sort out my terminology:

Internet voting = web voting = Using the Internet to record your vote on some central election servers.

Electronic voting machine (or I sometimes just say "voting machine") = any of a number of different technologies for voting, primarily about touch-screen voting machines, but I would extend it to mark-sense optical scanners as well, in its broadest sense.

Electronic voting encompasses both using electronic voting machines, and Internet voting (which you can think of as using an electronic voting machine, at a distance, over the net).

This is fairly consistent with the use at
