Congressional hopeful seeks seat in 12th District
He supports the new electronic voting machines and said they are similar to electronic banking and bill paying.
"It is moving forward, which is what we need to do," Spadea said.

Electronic banking works because the bank knows ALL ABOUT your money and has a vast auditing process to ensure nothing unusual happens. If there is an error, they roll back the transactions.
There is no way to audit your vote. There is no way to roll back your vote.
Only you know how you intended to vote.
The comparison is completely incorrect.
