Internet voting… Oregon home of Cover Oregon and the broken Secretary of State’s website?

by Rep. Bill Post

Look I’m a BIG tech guy. I love new technology and the idea of internet voting on the surface sounds kind of cool BUT with technology comes a huge possibility of the misuse of that technology. Hacking is at an all time high. Our safety and personal security is of the utmost importance. We MUST feel safe with our personal information. This is a study that is not worth the time nor effort and I wholeheartedly ask that our legislature let this one go. Especially now with the debacle in state IT that is Cover Oregon and the SOS website.
