Thank you, Taldor LTD., for tarnishing the reputation of computerized elections in Israel

Yesterday, the primaries election of the Labor party in Israel was aborted and postponed to a later date due to serious malfunctioning of the voting machines deployed for this purpose.

The provider of those machines was Taldor LTD.

I thank Teldor for alerting the people to the fact that computers are not the end-all solution to everything. Also, I’m personally against computerized voting for a very long list of reasons, including financial, environmental, ethical, technical and political ones. too long a list to keep count.

Truth is, I was sure it would fail, I just didn’t imagine it would happen so catastrophically… :-)
