Checks and Balances
instead of relying on just a computer program or private ballot counting to tally the votes correctly.
How about a voting papertrail that can be viewed by the voter to make sure that the vote was made correctly with these electronic machines, then have it put in a sealed box that is allowed to be watched by both candidate party representatives, to make sure there is no tampering of the ballots.
Then allow for a public count (at the voting location) of each box to make sure the counts match the totals registered with the computer program.
Then post the results for each computer count matched with the papertrail count, then post the results side by side online for all to see.
This will allow the public, candidates, and candidate representatives to assure accuracy with county state and national results to assure they actually do have a voice.
All counting should be public and allowed to be counted by appointed candidate representitive at each voting location as well as county and state wide level. All Public, no more hiding behind a computer program or private county.
There should be rules put in place to keep the crowed quiet however and any rowdy crowed members should be escorted out and given a ticket. This will assure that it is quieted enough to be counted correctly.
I also feel a video record of the counting should be available as a secondary measure to add another check to the process in case an error not originally caught is accounted for.
