We voted yesterday

California has touch screen voting now, at least in San Mateo County, where Sue and I voted on Saturday.

The machine prints a paper confirmation of your choices which you can compare to your electronic choices before confirming your vote. Sue, a CPA who has done numerous audits, says this auditable paper trail is how all electronic voting should work.

One odd feature. They give you a confirmation number that you enter into the machine so you can vote. Seems to me this number at some point gets linked to you, so is it possible to then determine how someone voted or is this process randomized?
