Hand Counting Ballots

  1. Cost of Hand Counting Ballots: A Formula (WeDoNotConsent)
      "At the risk of being immodest, what I'm about to describe has the potential to greatly advance the hand-counted paper ballot (HCPB) movement in every community." 08-07

  2. Methods for Marking and Counting Ballots in the USA (
      "I have found that many well-meaning actions by citizens and by legislators, defined rules, laws, and procedures which created problems because their scope included circumstances not perceived by the writers. To attempt to minimize that situation, I finally have accomplished this long-standing task -- an attempt to specify and list every known method of casting ballots in the US, and every known method of counting ballots (votes) in the US." 08-07

  1. -German Federal Court Rejects Voting Machines (Bundes-Verfassungs-Ggericht)
      "However, the Federal Voting Machines Ordinance (Bundeswahlgeräteverordnung) is unconstitutional because it does not ensure that only such voting machines are permitted and used which meet the constitutional requirements of the principle of the public nature of elections. According to the decision of the Federal Constitutional Court, the computer-controlled voting machines used in the election of the 16th German Bundestag did not meet the requirements which the constitution places on the use of electronic voting machines."

      Editor's Note: Voting machines were rejected because they did not allow public scrutiny of the individual ballots. This standard would also be relevant to voting machines in other countries, such as the United States. 03-09
