the vote

the vote was pretty uneventful at our polling station. Utah has the Diabolical© machines, but also has a paper trail. You get to review your vote on screen before you submit and then on the paper receipt and THEN cast your ballot. The only ‘problem’ when i was there was that they only had two machines up at 7:00 (and a line of 8 people) and they were handing out cards faster than people could vote. This meant that people were standing behind the people actually voting at the time and, since it was the fist time voting with the new system, invariably they were watching the voters’ screens. The poll-workers had the card issuers stop issuing cards for a while so that they could get caught up and by the time i finished casting my ballot no one was standing behind any voters and four machines were up and running.

Happy U.S. voting day everyone! Enjoy your voice.
