  •  if there was any justice..... (0+ / 0-)

    if there was any justice - sec 5 would be expanded.
    expanded to all states, and all voters.  maybe a sec 5A,
    stating that county lines in the states would be fixed where they are today, and voting districts would be set using them, arranged by equal population, and gerrymandering was illegal, and eliminated one and for all.

    To allow these states to control our votes is already against the law - but with bobbie and the 3premes every voter is at risk.

    As I have suggested before - since we bailed out the banks, the government should be able to nationalize their atm machines every 2 years.  there only needs to be a choice offered, banking or voting.  if the banks can run their atm's they can handle this too.(altho the ballot itself and the collectio n of data needs should be open sourced so every programmer in the country can look at it for honesty)  This voting option would be available 24/7 for a week before election day.  anyone could use one to vote anywhere in the country.  just key in your zip code and the ballot would appear.  key in your social security number, it would be checked for a duplicate vote.  then the voter could enter their votes for every office.  think of the possibility of being able to click on link to inform the voter about the candidate - a biography, their donors, their platform.  
    a confirmation of your vote could be sent to your phone, or email or printed.  a healthy paper trail to say the least. and then the vote could be sent directly to the county when the voting closes.  no lines, no waiting, no excuses not to vote.
