Hello people

On thing that always drove me nuts is the way we vote in this country. The process is so unreliable and corrupt that its laughable when ever i hear someone blaming the voters for the problems are officials are causing.. And now that we have these electronic voting machine with no paper trail, its even worse! recounts, votes going missing or being switch, I can't believe this is going on. These votes are so blatantly fixed it drive me crazy.

which brings me to the topic of my post, I saw this video from TED and it just make so much sense.

David Bismark demos a new system for voting that contains a simple, verifiable way to prevent fraud and miscounting -- while keeping each person's vote secret.

It seems like a simple yet very effective way to solve a huge problem we have in the world. Also i feel this is a topic/idea that everyone can agree with no matter who you are.

this is something we should all get behind, because it effects us all more than you would expect. what do you all think?
