131. i wish we here could always emphasize the positive changes they are
working towards instead of wasting time infighting. as much as i think the machines are a huge priority and we have to strive towards an auditable paper trail, that's my thing- i have no wish to shove it down others throats, i support those that increase awareness, and never imagine the two efforts are competing. i'm happy you're doing what you're doing, it's incredibly worthy. i live in a hotbed, one of the birthing centers of election fraud- and it's all dem- and i hear the computers are making it harder. that's great, but all this was local level- lots of $$$ involved, voters names handed over in paper bags on street corners. sweet litttle old ladies refusing challangers from doing their jobs and campaign workers delivering booths with broken seals. hundred of people filmed going into three precints to vote and being paid 50$ as campaign workers. i think it's the same thing on a much bigger scale, a variety of dirty tricks, but i believe the computers are the newest wrinkle. they sure don't help voter confidence and apathy. so it's all important to me.
i think the computers are inevitable, and we have to work within that to ensure good auditing is possible, that recounts happen without waiting months. a lot in the process needs to change. i soo have to get some sleep now. g'night.
