74. Thinking about voting in primaries scares me
The fact that we have Diebold and ES&S machines to select who we chose in the primaries is scary. There's less scrutiny and therefore more room for foul play. Public opinion polls for primaries are probably less accurate than for the elections, so if the results differ from the polls...

I fear that we could get stuck in a situation where people who would tend to reform voting would tend not to be selected by the Diebold and ES&S programming.

What are we to do?
