Ballot Changes


WHAT WE SHOULD HAVE IS A REVIEW
BY EACH STATE OF ITS ELECTION LAWS AND PROCEDURES TO MAKE
CERTAIN THAT THEIR LAWS ARE CLEAR AS TO WHAT CONSTITUTES A
VOTE AND WHAT DOESN’T. ANOTHER THING WE SHOULD HAVE IS
THAT WE SHOULD GET RID OF PUNCH CARD BALLOTS IF THAT’S
WHAT YOU’RE SUGGESTING. WE SHOULD GET RID OF PUNCH CARD
BALLOTS. GO TO OPTICAL SCAN BALLOTS OR
EVEN MANUALLY MARKED BALLOTS WHICH ARE MORE ACCURATE. BUT YOU CAN’T MANUALLY COUNT, IN
MY OPINION, A MACHINE BALLOT. THE REASON WE WENT TO MACHINES
IS BECAUSE MACHINES ARE NOT SUBJECT TO
BIAS. MACHINES ARE NEITHER DEMOCRATIC
NOR REPUBLICAN. MACHINES COUNT OBJECTIVELY AND
DISPASSIONATELY. MACHINES COUNT WITHOUT HUMAN
ERROR AND WITH NO POTENTIAL FOR MISCHIEF. THAT’S WHY WE WENT TO MACHINES. BUT IT WOULD BE GOOD TO GO TO
MACHINES THAT WORK, WHERE PEOPLE CAN UNDERSTAND HOW TO
OPERATE THEM LIKE AN OPTICAL SCAN INSTEAD OF A PUNCH CARD.
