Voting: September 2008 Archives


September 27, 2008

Back at USENIX Security 2008, California Secretary of State Debra Bowen gave a keynote talk on e-voting where she showed a (now famous in voting circles) bumper sticker which read: "Prevent unwanted presidencies. Make vote counting a hand job"

I hadn't been able to find a copy of it until a day or two ago when I saw it on Lucas Mearian's writeup of Bowen's appearance at the MIT Emerging Technologies Conference. For some reason, Mearian has taken down the picture of the sticker and renamed his post to "Prevent unwanted presidencies with paper ballots", though the URL path still reads "voting_should_be_a_hand_job".
