They're pickin' on Brad, again.
Not a good idea.




I spent more than two and a half hours not casting a vote on the system before eventually I, the poll workers, and, apparently, the folks at the L.A. County Registrar's central help desk call center, simply gave up. A complete and total failure of the e-voting system for disabled voters in the nation's largest voting jurisdiction. Again. On a system the county spent millions to buy in order to comply with the federal Help America Vote Act (HAVA) boondoggle by allowing disabled voters to cast their votes independently. Complete and total failure.

3. It's time for the ACLU to undo the damage it has inflicted on democracy
Edited on Wed Jun-09-10 02:28 PM by diva77
It was Tokaji working for the ACLU who fought for the unproven computerized voting "on behalf of the disabled" in all of the states with high numbers of votes in the electoral college. It's time for the ACLU to go back and undo the damage.

4. Drone us up, dumb us down or drown us out.
Democracy's chances get slimmer and trimmer by the day. Not a healthy diet, IMHO.

Kicked and Recommended.
