20. What is protected

is your right to keep your vote to yourself. That's why cameras, reporters etc are not allowed in polling places, and there are privacy booths. No one has the right to insist you reveal your vote. A bit of common sense would have gone a long way here. Seems to me the plaintiff in this case was daring the company to fire her. Perhaps she already knew her days were numbered. In any case, it will be interesting to see how this plays out.

BTW, wherever did you get the idea that this is a non-totalitarin society? When peaceful demonstrators are tear gassed, a city can order the cell phone service for a specific location be blocked, or the police can demand your cell phone records and the carriers do regular dumps, that doesn't indicate a 'free society to me'
