109. The media won't let us go back to paper ballots.
The elections are a media circus and that's the way they want it. They want to be the first to report who one and who lost, first to get and maintain the biggest ratings. They could give a rat's ass about real honest elections. We are screwed. If there were a way for bloggers to somehow go on line and report the numbers as they came in we might have a chance. In the past, for the mayor's race in Madison,WI. I've been able to get this information from the League of women voters as they got it. They tend to be very sympathetic.
