    • On June 21, 2009, by DarthTater - May as well add the provision for allowing for ID checks at the poling stations to verify the voter has the legal right to vote in the district they are voting in. A verifiable vote on paper to be verified by the voter means the dead can no longer vote...neither can cartoon characters. The Dead won't be very grateful to lose this privilege! And cartoon characters are going to be looney!

    • On August 21, 2009, by ChrisinNH - I agree with ntobi. While perhaps well-intentioned, this bill is seriously flawed. It does not accomplish what American citizens need to ensure fair and honest elections. To get some good info and see what the core issues are, read this concise argument against the bill: http://www.opednews.com/articles/Nancy-Tobi-Spells-Out-Exac-by-Joan-Brunwasser-090715-811.html While the bill seems on the surface to be a step in the right direction, we should all be aiming for a much higher standard. We deserve true democracy. After all, we're America, dammit!
