Mistake on my part. I can always blame it on being Bi-Polar.
Bwaaaaaaaaaaaa!

And I agree with you wholeheartedly.

Politics brings out the worse in people.

Friends and family argue over candidates and issues. Especially, hot topics and races. When it's all over, we must come together as a State and Nation. I know I will respect all winners for they were elected by the majority of the people. It is so important and our right to VOTE. I have been voting since I was eighteen years old and have never missed. I am a Proud American.

Please VOTE.

Like they say "No Vote ~ No Grumble!!"

Related to early voting ---
Last night on our radio-service-for-the-blind, we had a live guest from the county's election division on the air, taking calls and demonstrating one of the "accessible" voting machines that can be used by anyone. He was specifically demonstrating the "audible ballot" function - I fed the audio from the headphone jack directly into the control board. A very cool device indeed, and there will be about 400 of them spread to all polling stations.

People here can go to a number of polling places around and vote ahead of election day, or mail in no-reason-needed absentee ballots. He told us that they have already received about 200,000 absentee paper ballots, and on election day itself, they can process about 100,000 absentee ballots a day, so they estimate it could potentially take a week or more to count all the ones they expect to receive; but the electronic reports from the accessible machines will be on removable drives, and can be tallied almost instantly.

I must agree with Auntie. No matter who wins, I will support the next president.

As opposed to the types of people who drive around with "He's not my President" bumper stickers on their cars right now. So shameful.

As I recall, there were about a dozen European nations using electronic voting and all of them have eliminated it because of all the bugs in the system.

Electronic balloting is not ready for prime time.
Yes, so why do you believe voting by putting your marks on a paper ballot is somehow 'more accurate' than voting via the electronic machine, since BOTH ballots produce paper results and are counted by electronic machines, with the totals held in electronic memory? Or are you suggesting we should go back to hand counting or mechanical machine counting?

Bush and Cheney are not my president/VP. I don't want their kind of garbage even on this planet.

Shameful? TS!

I can’t speak for matapule, but what I will say is that there is no way to say with certainty that a ballot “printed” by a machine is your ballot. In theory, forensics experts should be able to tell you whether or not it was your brand of pen used to color in the bubbles on a paper ballot. Here’s an instructional video for the specific machine being used at Hawai‘i polls. As you can see, an enclosed panel prevents the voter from having any interaction with the paper trail, such as fingerprints.

Actually, the "pin code" issued at the polling place to activate the electronic machine is your receipt and the way of tracking accurate results, if you choose to challenge the process. Also, your voting choices are displayed in the printer window along with your individual pin code to approve before you actually cast the ballot. Hawaii's "electronic" voting machines are really a fancier way of voting on paper.

The problem in Europe is that what was indicated in the display did not match what was actually recorded on the machine, in some cases, too many cases, so many cases that the results were just not trustworthy and ALL countries using electronic voting had to abandon it.

Wrong thread, Sansei. This one was for voting two years ago in 2008, as the title says.

That's because no one started that thread. You should've started it instead of posting to the 2008 thread.

Sansei does not have the ability to start new threads. But yes, this thread was unnecessarily revived, with election discussions already going on elsewhere. I'm closing it.
