I don’t understand how we can continue to have issues with voting machines and recounts in the current day and age.
Voting is’t just a right, but a duty. Making that duty harder to fulfill gives people an excuse for not participating.
We should demand a federal voting system. Everyone should get a standardized federal voting ID – and that ID should then map the voter to their state, district, and county. The voting should be centrally managed. No more of this bullsh*t about signatures and demographic mismatches.
I should be able to sign onto a secure system, vote, and that should be tallied in minutes, not days.
When I move I should not have to jump through different voting regulations to make sure I can still cast my ballot. That is insane.
We have the technology, and sure some people may not have internet – but polling stations can just be a PC and those voters do the same thing from that voting station that they could do from home.
And guess what? I can vote form anywhere, because when I authenticate, it is going to map me to my state, county etc, so if I work in Pennsylvania, but live in New Jersey, I can still hit a voting station at lunch in Pennsylvania because it doesn’t really matter anymore.
Call your representatives, call your reps, demand that we fix this voting debacle.
