Dems: Web voting a success

By Deb Price, the Detroit News, 02/09/04


"Michigan Democrats judged their experiment in Internet voting a success, but security experts — and even some Michiganians who cast Internet votes — doubt that it can be trusted in general elections."


One caucus participant said he couldn’t vote even once by Internet, let alone often.

Dennis Papazian of Troy, a history professor at University of Michigan-Dearborn, said he couldn’t get the Democratic site to take his vote, even though he’s a self-described savvy computer user.

“For me it was a total flop. It just wasn’t ready for prime time,” said Papazian, though he hopes the bugs get worked out."
