    A paper receipt with a number that can later be verified to make sure that his or her vote was counted, and not lost or misread.

    I've wondered since 2000 why we can't do this. If our entire banking system is basically electronic, held by computers all across the world, why can't we do the same with voting? Why do we continue to rely on archaic voting practices prone to error and manipulation?

    This article brought the issue to mind again this morning:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/29/us/politics/29anxiety.html?_r=1&hp&oref=slogin

    I'm not reading this entire thread to see if anybody has used the words "secret ballot."

    Has anybody?

    God I hate contracts. If I spent just one year not working under contract I reckon my hairline would push back down towards my face instead of running away.

    I think it should be like doing an M&M Trial of Might

    just get a big bag of M&Ms with the candidates' names on them

    grab two randomly

    mush em together

    whichever one is broken you eat, whichever one isn't broken goes tot he next round

    the last one left wins

    and hey, you got a belly full of candy!

    On the earlier subject of the EC I found this intarweb, it's interesting:

    Faithless Electors : times when the electoral college has gone against the poopular vote



    edit~ this is good info you fucks.


    1) How many Obama-popular states will send their electors to McCain?
    2) When do we riot?


    edit2~ I'M LEARNING: http://www.fairvote.org/e_college/bindingstates.htm
    29 states and the District of Columbia have legal control over how their electors vote in the Electoral College. This means that their electors are bound by state law and/or by state or party pledge to cast their vote for the candidate that wins the statewide popular vote.

    The list is in that link. Ohio (my state) is among the states whos electors are legally bound to vote along with the popular vote. Maybe that's part of why I thought that was the norm? Or I'm just ignorant.


    edit3~ At the bottom of the list they make note that people are still largely free to vote against the popular vote :o
    Over the years, however, despite legal oversight, a number of electors have violated their state’s law binding them to their pledged vote. However, these violators often only face being charged with a misdemeanor or a small fine, usually $1,000. However, many constitutional scholars agree that electors remain free agents despite state laws and that, if challenged, such laws would be ruled unconstitutional. Often times, therefore, electors can decline to cast their vote for a specific candidate (the one that wins the popular vote of their state), either voting for an alternative candidate, or abstaining completely. In fact, in the 2000 election, Barbara Lett-Simmons, an elector for the District of Columbia, cast a blank ballot for President and Vice President in protest of the District’s unfair voting rights. Indeed, when it comes down to it, electors are ultimately free to vote for whom they personally prefer, despite the general public’s desire.

    1) None, and if any do it probably won't affect the outcome.

    2) Immediately following the election regardless of who wins. Just go buck wild, everyone else probably will. I'll be on the porch in my rockin' chair with a loaded shotgun.
