Shem the Penman Toulouse Since: 16.1.02 From: The Off-Center of the Universe (aka Philadelphia) Since last post: 89 days Last activity: 3 days # 22 Posted on 5.11.08 0628.42 | Instant Rating: 1.00 Originally posted by Spaceman Spiff Electronic. The party candidates are arranged in columns. There's a button to vote straight party, or you can press individual buttons across party lines. A light lights up next to your choices, and you press a button marked "CAST VOTE" to finalize your vote. This. I asked for a paper ballot but was told I couldn't have one. Going to be writing to the Board of Elections. I'm originally from New York, so I do miss those old switch-and-lever voting machines. When it comes to voting, I don't have the same level of trust in electronic. "The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.

AIM: # 24 Posted on 5.11.08 1035.00 | Instant Rating: 4.53 New Yorker, still using the circa-1965 switch and lever machines. We had a touch-screen system at our precinct this year, but it was reserved for disabled access. It's sounding like this was the last presidential election for these machines, we may still use them in 2010, but by 2012, there will be a different system.

One black and one white. We one of them in a box. Just kidding. Paper ballot, complete the arrow with a marker. www.oklafan.com "Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go backstage. I'm proud of myself, I just beat Brad Armstrong!" - Arn Anderson on WCW Saturday Night in 1992, in the classiest display I've ever seen of someone putting over an underrated mid-carder that everyone in the locker room knew deserved better than the push he got.

The one-two punch of Hurricanes Fran and Ivan last year hit pretty hard even in the N.C. mountains. We got floodings, mudslides, roof damage, road washouts, etc. Fran made for a rough, spooky night.
