Risky, expensive online voting bill moves forward in legislature

Yesterday, after a brief discussion S.B. 939 was passed by the Planning and Development Committee. As we have discussed many times, online voting is risky and expensive.

In the discussion, two representatives expressed concerns with the online voting provided in Section 60.  Representative Jason Rojas said that the Senate should consider removing the section as the bill moves forward. Representative William Aman said he would vote for the bill as the Government Administration and Elections Committee were working on improvements to that section.

Update 5/4/2011: Our understanding is that Section 60 will be removed from the bill.
