Not in the Netherlands - we mostly use voting computers. Quite complicated beasts, with a hundred membrane keys and an overlay with incredibly small letters indicating the person and party. Of course, we also have a good few parties - at least five that have a chance of getting into the government. I've got quite bad eyes, so it's difficult enough for me, but old people often have to have assistance in getting the right choice. Boudewijn Rempt |
