New Jersey is taking a small step toward ensuring the voting machines their citizens use are reliable and work as advertised. The state Attorney General has asked New Jersey Institute of Technology scientists and students to test printing systems that will be required on all voting machines used in the state after next January. Activists have pointed out, correctly, that this new development does not go far enough and they turn to California for proof. California has begun a top to bottom inspection and testing of all voting systems used in the state.
