The study, conducted by the universities of Maryland, Rochester and Michigan, found that 3 percent of people voting electronically selected a candidate they did not intend to choose. While much of the attention to electronic voting machines has been on the security issues involving the machines' software and how the systems are ...

At midnight last night, the Elite 8 polls closed in the Jessica Biel Memorial Child Starlet Bracket.

On Tuesday, the battle over Maryland's largest planned slots casino -- which could be its most lucrative by far -- will land squarely in front of Maryland's highest court. On the surface, the issue before the Court of Appeals is whether Anne Arundel County citizens should have the ability to second-guess their County Council in November on a zoning law required for the 4,750-machine casino at Arundel Mills mall to move forward.

Old style ballot box facing electronic poll threat
HONG KONG — They held elections within days of each other: The Philippines, a lively democracy where politicians get shot dead in the street and Britain, the rock solid 'mother of all parliaments'. But the Asian state's quick-fire digital vote made the European nation look more like a grandmother as its citizens stuck to the old style of dropping bits of paper in battered old boxes. It was hoped electoral automation in the Philippines would cut rampant cheating, where ballot boxes went missing or were stuffed with fake votes and local officials sometimes simply fiddled the results themselves.

His old key unlocked the voting machine. The same key, he discovered, could be purchased online, and could unlock office furniture and hotel mini-bars. That was two years ago. Such issues have long since been taken care of, claim manufacturers of that machine, who vouch for the reliability ...
