WillAffleckUW's Journal: 40 percent of Americans don't trust real vote counting 5

Journal by WillAffleckUW

So, today on NPR I heard that, according to polls, 40 percent of American citizens don't trust that their votes will be accurately counted.

Really?

So, is there ANY reason why we shouldn't just adopt the Canadian 30 day federal election mechanism and its use of registration via IRS tax forms and paper and pencil ballots with 99.9999 percent accuracy and one national ballot format?

Or will we continue to have the stupidest election mechanism in the history of the World?

  • I meant Revenue Canada, not the IRS.

    My bad, eh?

  • Well, we do driver's license registration instead of revenue service registration. But we now have one consistent voting form, and optical scan statewide, and the ballot is mailed to you three weeks ahead of time. I'm voting tonight, in the comfort of my living room, and dropping off my ballot at the collection center on my way to work in the morning.
    • We do optical scanned paper voting in all but two counties - and almost all votes in those two counties are also optical scanned paper ballots.

      I voted 2 weeks ago.

  • Or will we continue to have the stupidest election mechanism in the history of the World?

    Yes, since that's just the tip of the iceberg.
