Would you support casting your ballot over the Internet? Why?
NO. Fraud comes to mind. You think fraud is no problem let the internet be a voting method and we will gain millions of "new" voters alright.
No. Too easy to cheat.
Vote in person with a paper ballot read by an optical scanner.
It's the best way to prevent cheating.
We seem to be able to keep things fair on these USMB polls - I think the concept at least has merit.
The problem with voting on the internet is that as things are now, it would be unverifiable and given to fraud. Hypothetically, if this problem were overcome, it would be great.
The fact is that internet type technology could be used to create a separate system for universal voting. This would provide for true equality in voting, rather than the current electoral college system which gives more voting power to people that live in less populated states.
The electoral college may have been a practical necessity at the time the Constitution was written, but nowadays, it is obsolete and unfair. It insures voting inequality and is in direct contradiction with the notion of equality in voting.
Of course, Utah will never agree to changing that.
I disagree. I think you should have to circle your choice on the ballot (instead of dots that can be misread by machines) and each ballot should be hand counted by a committee. Fuck machine error.
Banal and boring redundant repitition.....
There is no way I would vote on the "internet". I honestly do not even have enough "faith" to vote by mail ... considering the U.S. Postal Service!
I still think the .... Vote on election day, stick your finger in a vat of dye to prove that you, have voted ... it not a bad idea at all.
But I do agree ... get rid of those damn machines. If you can not read a paper ballot - you should not be voting! Simple as that.
Hell no with a Capital H, not secure enough.
i agree. use to be all voting was by paper ballot and counted by hand that evening....all counted on a small local level...why not go back to that...
