    Mr pixxer and I sat on the floor of the gym in Rosa Parks elementary school, after running the gauntlet of children bouncing balls off the exterior wall of the school, and filled out our eight-page ballots, each I think 11"x17". I had to wait a minute or two for the scanner to be free, and that was with no line to get into the building, so I think an increase in the scanner budget would definitely be required. The person feeding the scanner can easily see what you have voted for, too, which could be an issue in some areas of the country, unless voters feed the scanner themselves. Since it's easy to do, that would be a good option IMO.

    We all understand that freedom isn't free. What Romney and Ryan don't understand is that neither is opportunity. We have to invest in it.
