37. How can you have a receipted ballot in an anonymous election?
I've heard this before, but, all I keep coming back to is you can't create a receipt that would be legal that would actually say who you voted for. Talk about fraud possiblities! Rove could print up a million or two fake receipts with Bush's name on them, and just hand them out to people as they come in to contest Shrub's losing the election. At best, you can have a generic receipt saying you voted, nothing more. What if some rethug takes a look at your receipt and beats you to a pulp? The possibilities are frightening, more so because an election is meant to be confidential always. I just don't see how receipts could work without massive fraud.
