Every election time, this matter creeps up.
 
Every computer science professor gets on TV and says that electronic voting machines (EVMs) can be hacked.
 
There was one professor who wrote on this subject a few years back and was vehemently against EVMs because of security concerns.
 
Then he decided to work as a polling booth attendant in Maryland.
 
After that, he wrote an article saying that, what with all the manual procedures surrounding the voting, the EVMs were pretty OK.
 
And of course he is ignored nowadays.
 
PS. Not that certain EVM manufacturers aren't against rigging their machines to support the party that supports Big Business.
