…even in the USA – especially when you are in an election cycle.
In 1969 the dream of JFK was accomplished. Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. A feat of great courage and technology.
The year is 2008 – one of the most important elections is taking place in the USA – and, even though that country is one of the most technologically advanced nations on earth – they can’t get a voting machine to work.
I really don’t care about the State elections. They are for the States – but a federal election is different, so we have to ask a question – why is it so hard to have one company making the machines, if there needs to be machines? I hear all the time about the paper trail in the elections as of now. Why have different machine in each state for a federal election?
Have you looked at how much this election has cost so far? If you follow these elections you see that all these machines are doing all these different things – look at the federal election in California and all the dross that is added to that election ballot – it is a nightmare. You could easily have the federal election and State election side by side, but no – you have all this mess, and it is all open to abuse.
