101. well, I'm puzzled about cost
For instance, you say:
3.) much better recording of demographics of 100% going in each of targeted polling stations have to be recorded (even by observation and registration records) if responders are "reluctant"; hell, in Florida you can write down auto plates and look them up!

Well, are you suggesting that the single interviewer currently assigned to each polling station can record demographic information on every voter? That seems far-fetched.
...and advertised; ever heard of American Idol?

Are you proposing that an advertising campaign that would make a large fraction of voters aware of a voter verification website could be mounted at nominal cost?

I'm really not very interested in contesting the inherent merits of these proposals. If you believe that the polling principals are ethically obligated to implement all these suggestions on their own dime, then I disagree, and I think your opinion is far outside the mainstream. If you are interested in persuading the polling principals and/or networks to implement some of these suggestions, it might be a good thing.
