25. That's an OPINION ...
Edited on Mon Jan-05-09 04:05 PM by defendandprotect
not a requirement of IRV --

I am sure that IRV proponents will insist that IRV can be counted by hand, and that it is in some foreign countries.
But what those proponents won't tell you is that in the United States and Scotland, the implementation of IRV means
more complex technology, and uncertified software specially adapted with the IRV algorithm.

Keep in mind that Democratic Party and Republican Party will be strong opponents against

IRV voting and will do anything to stop it --

So will media because they want results by "11 O'clock news" ---

and they want to make the calls ---

Think about it -- is that what you want--??

We all want paper ballots/pen and hand-counting -- and that works with IRV --
