The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Comedy Central, April 7, 2004

The Daily Show's John Stewart on e-voting: "If there's one thing we learned from our last presidential election, it's that democracy is far too important to rely on an outdated error-prone system like punchcard ballots. So, as we gear up for the 2004 vote, many communities have moved on to electronic voting -- a far more high tech, error-prone system."

Stewart's story, featuring an interview with a RABA Technologies computer scientist explaining how easy it was to hack into and alter votes on Diebold's server, is toward the end of the online segment.
