but I wont be the first in line. I'm Canadian. We have paper ballots here, it works, and so far we have resisted the change despite media spin and calls to "modernize" and make the process "cheaper". I have personally stayed after hour with other scrutineers and verified the ballots a couple of elections now, and the first election I was old enough to vote in, I worked the poling station. It only takes a few hours and the numbers have to match. It doesn't fix all the problems obviously, but we DO have more than one party, and in many riding you don't have to vote for the lesser of evils. I don't know how this could be accomplished in America, but when I look across the boarder and see a country founded on the most aspiring principles a free peoples could contrive, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, and see that they have electronic voting machines machines, my gut cringes with trepidation.
