Ask questions at the polls and read the paper receipt!!
Original post made by Concerned about Electronic Voting on Nov 7, 2006
Okay, maybe I did inadvertently vote for AS (although I am 99% sure I didn't), shouldn't it have been an easier, more straightforward process to make the change? Shouldn't the poll worker know how to work the machine? Why was the manager so quick to put it on me, instead of recognizing that their process was cumbersome to say the least? What if I didn't already have a basic understanding of computers or the wherewithal to keep asking until I got my question answered?
And, I worked as a poll worker for a couple of elections, and we were not instructed how to deal with this, so I know it wasn't an aberration that the first person didn't know how to do this.
Get rid of electronic voting!
