Vegas Versus Voting

Bruce Schneier points out the obvious (and sad) truth about voting machines versus slot machines:

And adds:

Other important differences:

* Slot machine are used every day, 24 hours a day. Electronic voting machines are used, at most, twice a year -- often less frequently.

* Slot machines involve money. Electronic voting machines involve something much more abstract.

* Slot machine accuracy is a non-partisan issue. For some reason I can't fathom, electronic voting machine accuracy is seen as a political issue.

Politics just boggles the mind.
