Electronic elections? - Buenos Aires Herald

Buenos Aires Herald:

Electronic elections?

The switch would obviously cost money in the short term although save it in the long term (the paper alone for the June ballots will cost 13 million pesos) and therein lies the rub with the chronic dearth of long-range planning in this country.
