The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is recommending that the 2007 version of the Voluntary Voting Systems Guidelines (VVSG) decertify direct record electronic (DRE) machines

Not verified yet, but this could be a very major development, if true.

I don’t completely agree with ba

ing all DRE- they play a valuable role for disabled voters and a few other demographics. During the last election I watched one older gentleman leave to go get a magnifying glass, since he couldn’t read the optical scan ballots.

Requiring a stronger voter verified paper record for a recount, rather than ba

ing all DRE, seems more reasonable.
