We have a manned space station circling the earth; GPS that tell you your location anywhere in the world within a couple of feet; computers you can talk to and can answer back; robots replacing workers in factories; space probes that can circle the moons of Saturn and send back data; wrist watches that can tell you your heart rate, deliver you text messages and make phone calls; My little Tom-Tom GPS can guide me to any address in Canada or the United States; we have cell phones with apps that have unlimited capabilities; we have cars that can drive themselves; and we are within ten years of unbelievable artificial intelligence…
And I had to stand in line for one hour to feed a paper ballot into an antiquated scanner when I went to vote.
This is ridiculous in a time of advanced technology. We should be able to register on line and select a secure password and identifying data; and then on voting day fill in our ballot online on a secure government network. A super computer should be able to spit out the results by the voting deadline.
The know-how and technology are available.
And Hand Counts? You’ve got to be shitting me!
