I've never once used an electronic voting machine. Everywhere I have ever lived has had the Scantron paper forms.

I'm happy about that.

Voter ID isn't enough. My idea:

  • Election Day should be a federal holiday with in-person voting, photo ID, paper ballots, and blue/purple finger dye.
  • Voter registration should be purged annually and re-registration (like your car's license plate) required. Registration should close 2 weeks prior to any election.
  • No early voting. Everyone votes on election day. With Election Day as a federal holiday, the polls should be open for 24 hours opening and closing at midnight. As a federal holiday, most businesses would close anyway.
  • Paper ballots should be fill in the circle, feed into scanner by the voter which immediately validates it. Then paper ballot sealed and inserted into ballot box with the voter's finger dyed immediately.
  • Absentee ballots should be unmarked and brought to any local election office in-person if inside the US and the process certified as above. Outside the US, should be done at US Embassy/consulate, US military post, or similar gov't agency that can preserve the integrity of the ballot.
  • If it takes a week or so to count the votes, so be it. The integrity of the vote is more important than speed.

The reason inauguration happens 2 months after the election is to give adequate time to count the votes. So there's no rush.

Why not use the ink on your finger to place a finger print on the paper ballot? That way with a recount if it got real crazy u could be identified by your name and finger print? I mean you already have a damn inked finger might as well use it.

I still believe in secret ballots as they remove the possibility of retribution against voters of opposing parties. Marking the individual ballot with personal identification features is just as bad as a gun registry should that info fall into the wrong hands.

I would change haveing the registration/ID last the entire 4 year election cycle. Many states allow you to pay for registration every 2 years (sometimes more). This'll allow you to vote in the Presidential election as well as midterms/special elections.

For example, the primary elections started Feb, 2016. We could register in 2015 for the upcoming 2016 cycle. That registration and ID would be valid for 2016-2019, at which point you would need to renew it.

Easy solution: Go back to the way it used to be.

You don't own property, you aren't taxed, and you don't vote.

Own property? You're taxed, show us deed and tax form, then cast your vote.

Technically no one owns property, you lease it in the form of high tax from the gov and then when they want it back they just take it.

Why not just use the same ID you use at the welfare and food stamp office? To buy beer and cigarettes? To drive your car? For your SSI payments? Pretty fucking simple.

Taking welfare should make you ineligible to vote

A lifer in the welfare system, you know the ones that have NEVER worked and never will should be ineligible. On the public dole……no vote for you.

You shouldn't be able to drive, vote, or buy things unless your a citizen and can prove it.

I've backpacked through India and spent much time in Varanasi.

They have corpses in the streets and corpses in the Ganges river there.

Pro-tip: when you see a pile of rags in an alleyway, don't disturb it...

...and when you see a monkey gnawing on something, don't get curious.

What other countries don't require ID to vote that actually hold any real elections. It's racist to say negroids can't get ID. They have to in order to get gibs, smokes, and 40s.

Only 3rd world countries without a functioning ID system in the first place. And even there they have learned to use workarounds like thumb-painting.

FYI: I created this post for the Voat Developers suggesting an increase the title character width from 200 to 300, so Tweets can be posted without mutilating and misquote them as badly as I was forced to here.
