1. We're still talking about this; 14 yrs ago it was a hot topic on DU

2. I remember. Andy Stephenson, it became his cause. :(

It seems the more changes they make, the worse it gets.

4. Very good summary of vital subject--with humor!

His trademark.
Have already sent this to my town clerk. We have paper backup, but it's critical information.
Thanks, Rhiannon!

5. Oh! What a wonderful idea!

Good for you! When I voted today I paid close attention - it seemed to be better organized and more efficient, but that's not addressing the actual machines. Here, we fill in little circles with a pen and stick them into the machine that counts them. I always go back and double check my circles, LOL - and it looks like this means that there's a paper trail, but how reliable the machines are is the question. Since there were only local offices this time around, it could well be close.
