164. Surely you can answer this question,
HCPB for all federal races in the 2008 elections. This would mean hand counting just 1-3 races (the president and vice president; your U.S. senator if s/he is up for re-election; your U.S. Representative). Yes, we would need two ballots, one for these races and one for all other contests and questions on the ballots. Canada already uses an HCPB system for its federal races. Various states and municipalities already have protocols for HCPB, and one has been presented in this paper. These could easily be adapted from one jurisdiction to another. ...

People keep asking me how do you count a complicated ballot, but everyone Remains Silent when I give them this idea. WHY? What do you think of this idea? Is it workable?

I asked this question several time




But all I get is ...

It doesn't seem like a complicated question, does it?
