48. OK, LET ME DUMB THIS DOWN FOR YOU, a six or seven year old
Edited on Sun Aug-24-08 01:10 AM by kster
is sitting down at a table with his piggy bank that is filled with money.

NOW try and convince him/her that in order to count the money in that piggy bank that you have to take his/her piggy bank out of his/her sight in order to count the money.

At six or seven it is very unlikely that they will let you take their piggy bank out of their sight.

Now, try and sell the same story to an eight or nine year old, their thinking, you ain't taking my shit out of this building, at ten or eleven they might call the cops if you try and give them that story.

The ballots MUST never leave the polling place for the same reasons.

I mean, even if you tell the kids that you are a piggy bank pollworker they aren't going to let you leave the building.

Why? Common Sense.
