30. Of course you left out coercion...the main reason secret voting is valued.
It's frustrating doing voting 101 with you. Look up the history yourself.

And link it here. It'll be welcome relief from your stats.

You refuse to consider the law calling for "secret" voting and the reasoning behind it. That means not only I don't know what you did at the ballot can't prove to me what you did. So bosses, husbands, caregivers, etc., can't do their "thuginess" on the voter. Take a break from the echo chamber and do some real research.

You don't like the law??? Fine. I mentioned up thread others don't either...people a lot smarter than us.

Start a petition. GET A NEW LAW PASSED. But don't be surprised at people yawning at your idea not being original. It's already been thought of and it's unimplementable because of the desire to keep voting secret. I said before, if everyone knew how everyone voted it would be a lot easier to secure the system.

You've added zero to the debate. Perhaps you SHOULD stick with endlessly posting 2004 stats.
