Elections make me long for simpler times. Years gone by, when we didn’t know the meaning of "dimpled chad" and mechanical lever voting machines were as easy as a penny slot in Vegas.
With November approaching, and problems with voting mechanisms mounting, we’ve tried something big here in Arizona. We held the only large scale Internet election. There were no big catastrophes, however there were many minor problems. People do everything from shopping for cars to banking online, it could be the voting wave of the future. Someday maybe I’ll Twitter my vote. (Follow me here: @Audrakrell)
Many people have actually suggested using ATM machines for voting. Wouldn’t it be funny to be standing at the machine at the gas station, get yourself a $20, a sheet of stamps, a mini-statement, oh and cast your vote for President of the United States. I wonder if there would be any fees associated with that?
Watch out, it could be the next big money maker for the Federal Government.
Whatever the method, voting always works for me. Head over to Rocks In My Dryer to see what’s working for everyone else!
