always the tellers) probably wouldn't sign off on the vote if one of their
charges voted the wrong way...

For those who think it's ok to have our own representatives make laws
using electronic voting, and that accidents would never happen--
A major US int'l trade agreement just passed by 1 vote (CAFTA). And
guess what. One guy claims his vote was not recorded correctly. Even
though he objected at the time, the law has still passed.
Are we so sure nothing like this could ever happen here? And some here
would even consider internet e-voting by our representatives? Perhaps
this deserves a serious re-think.
