SERVE put onto the back burner
According to a NYTimes article, the US administration has decided not to use the SERVE e-voting system in the fall elections. According to Deputy Defense Secretary Paul D. Wolfowitz:
"The department has decided not
to use SERVE in the November 2004 elections. We made this decision in view
of the inability to ensure legitimacy of votes, thereby bringing into doubt
the integrity of the election results."
As I recently blogged, the SERVE system is catastrophically flawed. Alas, the powers that be, while caving to the pressure with respect to the November elections, Wolfowitz says that they will continue to develop the system.
