San Francisco Chronicle endorses voter verified paper trail

Editorial, San Francisco Chronicle, 12/11/03


"In California, Secretary of State Kevin Shelley responded to these legitimate concerns by ordering that all electronic voting machines leave a paper trail by July 2006. This wise decision, which will undoubtedly influence the rest of the country, will also increase our confidence that our vote can be verified on paper.

"No computer system is completely infallible or impenetrable. Establishment of a paper trail is an important safeguard."
