76. Now we just have to do away with fire,
water, paper shredders......
A lot more legislation is needed to secure elections.
Sorry, but this process does not get the job done no matter how badly people want to believe it.
The thing that makes people uncomfortable is that there is a MOE in elections and some ballots don't get counted. If you are trying to count massive numbers in the most efficient way possible, it is an inevitability. It is a cop out to assume elections are stolen and manipulated when our party doesn't win.
We should address voting problems where the real issues are- intimidation, and making sure that we demand the competition in the technology so that it improves consistently to provide us with a the highers level of security and accuracy.
Laying down and saying but they own the machines it's all over no more free elections doesn't cut it if you have not run for county clerk, or at least applied for a job in that office.
