<br>Basically, the situation here is ridiculous. <br><br>Both sides will have "challengers" at the polls, which means under Ohio Law they can question your standing as a voter. <br><br>It would all be very simple if they would just check ID. I know I could easily vote numerous times throughout the county at every precinct....the registered voter database is online.<br><br>
I really think voting by mail is the way to go. There are so many other votes besides president that I don't see how anyone can make informed decisions without consulting a medium like the internet for at least the basic information. The lines they use to describe each measure can be so cryptic they are almost worthless (not to mention misleading).<br><br>We requested ours online and they showed up in our mailbox within 48 hours. We spent part of the evening figuring out what to vote for without the pressure of the polling centers. Even though its late, you could easily go pick one up yourself and take it home with you to fill it out.<br><br>Hey, I even voted for a Republican! Oh the horror! <br><br><br><br><font size="1"> (John McCain)</fontsize> <br>
"People whine about whether it is safe or secure, but that's nonsense. Billions of dollars are transacted online daily...why not voting?"<br><br>Because people still trust a minimum wage waiter/ess not to swipe their card a few times, than they do a bunch of electrons floating through the ether. Anyway if you vote on-line, then you can't be intimidated, threatened, verbally degraded, or disenfranchised - which doesn't serve the cause of either parties radical elements.<br><br>
_________________________ I used to think it was terrible that life was unfair. Then I thought what if life were fair and all of the terrible things that happen came because we really deserved them? Now I take comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe.
democrats in michigan used online voting for our primary this year. very easy and worked flawlessly for the 100,000+ people who used it. <br><br><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato
