> Pat Rabbitte raised the issue of eVoting at Leaders' Questions this

> behind the system as it stands, and was complaining that we're not
> keeping up with the neighbours who are all moving to non-paper-trail
> eVoting.  He's just said that "it's hard to explain internationally
> that we're the biggest exporter of software internationally but we
> still want to vote with paper and crayons", and that "we'll cop on and
> move on" eventually.
> A full script should be up on www.oireachtas.ie later today or tomorrow.
