2. That's why we have to get rid of Citizens United and reform election financing.

3. It would go a long way to fixing the broken system.

The OTHER big nail in the coffin of fixed elections is to depoliticize our districting.

These midterms are CRITICAL on this front. The opportunity only comes around once every decade...

4. broken ballots

Eliminating electronic voting sure would go a long way.

States are beginning to realize this.

5. Paper ballots are the way to go. Then you don't have hacking.

You can still have cheating, though. Just harder, especially if you have impartial people watching the ballot boxes.
