Holder needs to propose that ALL voting is to be done electronically on Election Day only.

That's the only way we're ever going to see extended voting with a verifiable paper trail.

Some of you are responding too Fast and Furious without reading the second sentence I wrote.

randomjsa: Given who is suggesting it and knowing his track record?

Absolutely not.

He does have a long history of being black and associating with other known blacks.

Old enough to know better: HotWingConspiracy: NateAsbestos: Philip Francis Queeg: atomic-age: Having everyone walk out of the polling place with a piece of paper documenting who they voted for is a fantastically bad idea.


Employer: Hey there employee, Did you vote?
Employee: Yes sir.
Employer: Let's see if you voted for the candidate that we support. Hand over your receipt.
Employee hands over receipt
Employer: Huh, it looks like you voted for that Kenyan Marxist. We told you there would be consequences for that. Clean out your desk.

Such a thing is already illegal. Why would the receipt make a difference?

Can't you get fired for any reason your employer dreams up in right to work states?

"You're firing me because of how I voted?"

"No, you used too many pens this year. Get the fark out."

Obvious solution: Big-ass trash cans outside the polling place. And make it illegal to force anyone to show you their receipt.

I'm not saying Canada has all the answers - in fact, we get things wrong a lot.

But printing out electronic voting receipts on a strip of Fruit Roll-Up was an inspired solution. (In the last election, since I voted NDP, I got Sicilian Orange flavor. I've heard Liberal is Strawberry Cream and Conservative is Wild Blueberry Tango.)

It isn't so damn difficult. You just put competent and non criminal people in charge.

Well, that would pretty much solve most of our problems. Then we wouldn't even have to vote.

So apparently, it is "pretty damn difficult".

That's just what the UN wants us to do. Makes it easier for them to rig our elections.

Somehow I read that as Eric Cantor and assumed that the new standard would be that only white male land owners would be allowed to vote... you know, like the founding fathers wanted.
