In Praise of Chads

Brian Klaas has this article in the WaPo:

This week, the U.S. government confirmed that Russian hackers infiltrated voting systems in several states, having targeted 21 of them. While there is currently no evidence suggesting any votes were changed, a hostile foreign power did gain access to voter registration databases -- the vital foundation of election integrity. After all, if you control who can and cannot vote, you control a democracy.

America's foolish experiment with digital voting processes must end. The Kremlin -- or other hostile foreign actors -- will certainly strike again. It's time for good old-fashioned paper to make a comeback.
I agree.  I'm a computer guy from way back.  I wrote my first program when LBJ was President.  But I do not think that digital is always better.  Sometimes there are good reasons to stick to the old way of doing things.
