If it ain't broke don't fix it - May 13, 2008
When officials come away from observing an electronic vote-counting system used in Monday's New Brunswick municipal election, I hope the lesson they take with them is this: Citizens do not need a machine to vote, nor to count those votes. And I hope for the health of our democracy that they will see that the application of technology to replace humans in this area is wholly inappropriate.
