This forum will present several perspectives on the current controversy surrounding electronic voting systems. While many computer scientists argue that the results from such systems are unverifiable and vulnerable to tampering, some election officials seem unconcerned. Tens of thousands of these voting machines are now being deployed across the U.S. and will be used to count about 40% of the votes in 2004.
