Electronic voting machines eliminate the hanging chad debates of elections past. Voting officials no longer have to study ballots to figure out for whom a voter actually intended to vote based on questionable marks on the ballot. An electronic voting machine locks in voting decisions based on clear choices made by voters.
No, electronic voting machines do not allow for meaningful audits, because there is not way to ask every single voter if the person they voted for is what showed up on their screen. Electronic machines are subject to fraud. A person only need to know basic programming in order to change one vote to two, or four to five.
