Hoke Quoted in Plain Dealer Regarding the Dangers of Electronic Poll Books

C|M|LAW Professor Candice Hoke was quoted in an article in today’s Plain Dealer (Sunday, March 17, 2012) Electronic poll books seem conceptually simple but may be vulnerable to hacking and cyber attacks, experts say, by Karen Farkus.  In response to Cuyahoga County elections officials’ plan to experiment with electronic poll books to verify the registration of in-person, Hoke warned that “E-poll books are similar to other computer-based technologies in voting – full of promise and lousy execution in most locations.”  Hoke stated that “[o]ur counties should be extremely wary of adopting them, but definitely a pilot project is a good way to proceed.”
