Tech News of the Weird: Drink While You Vote!

by on September 29, 2004 · 6 comments

AP is reporting that Diebold touchscreen voting machines similar to those used in Maryland were found abandoned recently on a street and in a bar in Baltimore.

I’ve long had some doubts about the wisdom of electronic voting but hey, if I can use them while sitting on a barstool and downing a beer then I’m all for it!

    Just you wait, electronic voting is slowly creeping up in our daily lives under the guise of technological advancement…

    NDSCorp, Engineering firm `owned` by Rupert Murdoch’s NEWSCORP is currently working on interactive TV software that soon will allow you to shop, gamble and yes, oh yes, vote from the comfiness of your couch.

    Good news: you won’t have to leave home. Bad news: the `fair and balanced` counting of your vote.

    If people can vote drunk, then maybe Kerry has a chance after all!

    I agree with TJH: anything owned by Rupert Murdoch is biased and has no integrity whatsoever.
