It would appear, from the news at least, that checking a voting machine can result in a $40,000 "repair" charge regardless of any actual damage to the machine itself.
There's a trend in the modern electoral machine in the Unites States towards greater automation. What there is not is a trend towards correspondingly greater accountability. He who counts the votes, &c.
I just find myself wishing that there would be some sense of actual interest on the part of the public at large, but what there is, instead, is a whole big steaming pile of apathy. Hell,it's contagious -- I had a hard time motivating myself to rant about it, and I can tell from the pace of the text above that I'm really just phoning it in.
So what's the solution?Tweet
