59. Thank you.

It has taken me five attempts to get any response to the question.

I read that we have been paying poll workers between $85 and $200 per day, but have still been running 25% short of workers, needing 2,000,000 but we've only able to get 1,500,000.

So how do we know that "pay the people" will get us 6,600,000? Should we pay more? Offer childcare? Make it mandatory for citizens to be counters? How much should be paid for us to know that we have 6.6 million people? We must KNOW so that we don't have chaos. Many BOE say that there are too many 'no-shows' on election day as it is.

Let's talk about HOW it can work in this country, if it can at this point in time.
