Can anyone explain for me what a traffic light has to do with electronic voting? The trope of buttons has been used to the point of abuse in the promotional campaign for electronic voting. The idea is obviously to convince members of the public that electronic button is just about pushing a button, and that all buttons are the same (and so everyday as to be beyond concern). Of course, the purpose of a traffic light (or a telephone, or….) is quite different to a voting machine (and the availability of, and need for, auditing differs substantially).
