A week after the primary election was plagued by human error and technical glitches, Maryland Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) called yesterday for the state to scrap its $106 million electronic voting apparatus and revert to a paper ballot system for the November election.
"When in doubt, go paper, go low-tech," he said.

Now, I'm not against using computers to make the counting faster, pero dapat magkaroon muna ng housecleaning at tanggalin ang mga COMELEC dagdag bawas operators (at mga officials na tumulong sa pag-coverup ng operations nila).
Kasi MAS MABILIS dayain ang election, at MAS MAHIRAP mahuli kapag computerized ang botohan at gusto ng admin dayain ito (dahil may COMELEC insiders sila with unsupervised access to the system).
Sa pagkakaalam ko, wala ni isang dagdag bawas operator sa COMELEC or Military noong 2004 ang naparusahan o nakulong. Pati si Garci lusot. Kung hindi lumabas ang GLORIAGATE tapes, malamang Commissioner Garcillano pa rin ang tawag natin sa kanya.
