Not who you WANT to, who do you really think is going to be our president for the next 4 years?
I agree. if you don't want people to know that you voted for a certain person, why the heck would you want to vote for him in the first place?Rich Z said:Personally, I think your vote should be public record. I really want to know that the people I voted for actually got my vote. I would like to look on the voting sheets and see if some of those names on that paper are also on gravestones in the local graveyard. Secret ballots mean no audits afterwards. There is no way of telling if your vote was even counted, much less applied to the person you wanted it to be applied to.
Only reason I'd be concerned with that is with repercussions after the fact of being on the "wrong" side. Example; our sheriff (my boss) is up for re-election today. Whether the incumbent or the challenger (who was the incumbent until two years ago) wins, I'd not be real comfortable with Jim or Charlie either one knowing how I voted.KJUN said:I agree. if you don't want people to know that you voted for a certain person, why the heck would you want to vote for him in the first place?
That's what I'm seeing as well. And the population of the country is moving increasingly to urban areas.Aslan said:If it ever becomes a popular vote contest, then basically 7 cities will decide every election in the near future...
