  •  Just add a national voting holiday and uniform... (1+ / 0-)

    ...federal ballots, and we could easily solve the national election issues.

    Getting the state ballots uniform across all counties is another matter, but I'm sick of waiting on Presidential results from some redneck Florida county!

      I'd rather they be accurate than fast.

      I'm used to a system where voters mark an "X" on a paper and all the ballots are counted by hand.

      It doesn't have to be particularly slow, but neither does it feed the insatiable demand of TV Networks!

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.

      •  Here we have to fill in an oval, like an SAT... (1+ / 0-)

        Whatever the final format, uniformity is the most important thing for the federal election, IMHO.

          but the procedure is the same.

          A physical ballot and an optical scanner. Kids use those things from the age of five and they are not complicated.

          They also save a hard copy for an audit trail.

          I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
          but I fear we will remain Democrats.

            is what frustrates me to no end. Four years to figure this out, we just have to make sure, in the meantime, that 2014 doesn't go like 2010 from complacency.
