Will you bother to vote?

Turns out that those Diebold voting machines are unreliable, prone to failure, and open to being hacked quite tracelessly. Not to mention that they don't actually fulfill the requirements of HAVA.

So it's certainly interesting to read that California's Secretary McPherson took it upon himself to re-certify the machines for use in California, isn't it?

There's always absentee.... until they make that on-line.

I vote absentee...or "mail-in," which is allowed in Colorado. I miss the ritual of going to the voting place and sometimes I do it anyhow.

But, of course, there's a lot of debate about whether or not mail-in ballots actually get counted in a lot of places. I remember reading stories where the officials said they didn't bother to count mail-in ballots unless the race was close.
