I’ve performed my civic duty

Filed under: government — Matt @ 10:28

Used the “safe, secure, and tamper-resistent” Diebold machines we’re graced with here. I didn’t heed the Governor’s call to cast my vote via absentee ballot; I figure the more people who vote with the machines, the greater the probability something will go wrong. The bigger the chaos resulting from the machines failing, the more likely they’ll go away. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not against voting electronically, but I am against voting machines with no independent validation and verification.

Am I concerned my vote won’t be counted correctly? Sure. But then again, you should always be concerned about that — has your vote ever been tallied with you present?
