153. "WHY" was my simple question.
I guess you could save a lot of hassle by not having ANY ballots. Just do a phone poll or something. "WHY" design the voting systems the way they did? Can't make any sense of your answer.

To save paper? Less hassle? Why not a secure system that you could go on-line, enter your PIN that you received at the poll, and check to see if your vote is REALLY there? Why is it TOTALLY unverifiable?

They are stupid and know nothing of votes or elections? (The closest thing to an answer to my question is when you say that plenty of elections have been stolen on paper. Think about it.)

There is no alternative that you propose other than my premise is "off". Can you please tell me how it can possibly be "off".
