Democracy Is Just Too Expensive
from the ah,-forget-it-then dept
It turns out, by the way, with all this talk about electronic voting and how flimsy it is, that the federal commission tasked with making sure that when you vote, it counts, is saying that it’s way too expensive for them to actually make sure electronic voting works. Not only is the commission lacking money, but it’s lacking in any kind of authority to tell election officials what to do. Those election officials have set up their own volunteer group to discuss issues with electronic voting, but even that’s not binding in any way. In other words, right now, election officials can pretty much do what they want when it comes to electronic voting. Democracy, it appears, is just too expensive and too complicated to do right.
