I was Precinct Chair for a time

What I wanted to do was to create a completely electronic free voting atmosphere for my precinct. This turned out harder than you think when the County Chair fights you because those machines bring in federal money which he doesn't want the county to lose. Even when you point out the money doesn't create any advantage or disadvantange for the party they create all these bogus schemes for why it needs to stay left alone and throw all these statistics about how voter fraud is impossible and all this crap. I think they are using the money for something else or something, it all seemed weird. After this and several other instances I quit the position. So, for me, I say get ride of those machines and make the media look retarded, this is much easier said than done...

You just got PAULED!
