Where is the money for voting machines?
Maryland continues to operate one of the least reliable, least credible election systems in the nation. How so? Because we vote using a paperless election system which fails to allow either for independent recounting or independent auditing. Our touch screen system has no way of uncovering and correcting either errors or fraud. Some day a machine in a Western Maryland precinct will report 100 percent of its votes going to Democrats. Or a Baltimore City machine will give all of its votes to Republican candidates. Everyone will know that these results are incorrect, but there will be no way of correcting them because there will be no paper ballots to recount or audit.
