I Voted!

I went across to Terrace School and Voted just now.
They had the usual Vote-matics. I find them a wonderful example of elegant design. They fold down to a slightly oversized brief case.
I have never had trouble with the butterfly ballots, but I can see how some people can.

Today they also had a touch screen terminal set up. There was no crowd so I decided to try it. I liked it.
It gives you several chances to review your choices and correct them if necessary. It also keeps a paper printout that you can review before you complete your vote.

There will be people who mess up using it. There will always be people who mess up. You can't protect people from themselves.
But this wasn't bad.
