Any estimate of how much this would cost for the tests and for the real thing? Haven't there been problems in the past with people that had matching names being banned because their name mates had criminal records? If they get the bugs worked out, this could be a significant improvement in accuracy, and speed. If the people used a mag stripe reader with a state ID, it would solve the duplicate name problem.

Ritchie, please go away! If we can't pass a common sense, simple voter ID enhancement anything "electronic" would be suspect, especially under your watch.

Funny, I have suspicions about any voter ID plan or verification system created by the Republican Party or secretive groups which won't disclose the sources of their financing.

Electronic voter registration and rosters only make common sense, will save time and money in the long run. Time to get away from moving paper around.

Hello?? Anybody hear about what happened to Target? Using anything electronic in any part of the voting process is a guarantee of theft and fraud. If it's worth stealing; hackers will find a way to steal it. Are elections worth stealing? Oh, yes; billions. The people who are telling you "we can make it safe!" - are some of the first to suspect. This is not paranoid conspiracy theory- TARGET. Stick with paper- it's far less expensive in the long run.
