11/05/2003 Entry: "eVoting horror story"

"Some Houston voters have had more than long lines to deal with today.

"Those who showed up early at the Holiday Inn at 7787 Katy Freeway found election judges scratching their heads over a glitch that later turned out to be a case of operator error. Worried about a malfunction, election judges passed out sheets of paper torn in half, along with sample ballots, and instructed voters to write down their votes.

"David Puckett said he sat down on the floor and spent 25 minutes scribbling his choices while other voters just took the time to write in their votes on the top races before dropping their homemade ballots into a pasteboard box. He said an election judge told him to write on the back of the paper if he ran out of room and then told him he might need to vote again this afternoon if the eSlate machines come back up. Then, Puckett said, the judges decided a second vote wasn't such a good idea.

"'They're making up rules as they go,' he said. 'It's unbelievable.'

"Elections officials were conferring this afternoon on whether to count the ballots written on scraps of paper, and that has Puckett worried."

Should voting really be harder than making a deposit to an ATM?
