    As a whole I'm very upset with the election process in much of the country. I don't have an answer to the problem but it should be one vote for every citizen of the US who is 18 and over. What's happening makes us little better than your average third world banana republic.... Sad....

    Ahhh, so, my signature probably is the most inconsistent thing ever. I believe the most sickening part of Elections in the United States is open, rampant voter suppression. If you tried to match every signature on the ballot for consistency you could probably throw 1/2 of them out. It's terrible in the South. I've wondered why we haven't changed Election Day to a national holiday, give everyone a day off, put the voting booths back in schools. Everyone should be able to vote and vote easily.

    I don't think it happens in Utah, but voter suppression in the South is rampant. What happened in Georgia this year for example is a travesty. What is so hard about 1 person 1 vote? The south has replaced poll taxes and literacy exams with a lack of voting machines, or mysterious "lack of power" issues.

    It's just sickening based on the South's history.

    I would HATE that, I love the mail in ballot. It's so simple and I believe I do a much better job of voting as I have time to research candidates and propositions in the peace of my home.

    On top of that I'd hate to waste a day off work standing in a long ass line to vote. I remember the "good old days" when you had to go stand in a 30 to 60 minute line out in the cold just to vote. It was not the fun time you'd think it is.

    I'd like to see voting somehow moved on-line.

    I won't abolish the mail in, just add more options. I would never stand in line again but I had a couple friends recently move and didn't get the mail ballots, probably their fault but they didn't get them so they had to ballot box. I work at the Hospital 8-7 on Tuesday's so I took my ballot down to the County Election office, also cause my envelope got ripped. I was worried if I mailed the ballot it was somehow get thrown out cause it was ripped. It was a strange reaction to a detail that wasn't a problem when I asked one of the county officials.

    Yes!

    Hell, you can file your taxes online -- shouldn't be too difficult to provide a platform for folks to vote.

    This 100%. Somehow we can keep taxes, banking, contracts, etc. secure but, they haven't figured out online voting.

    What a clusterf**k.... I'll guarantee this was intentional as the Democrats were going to lose about 1000 votes. By intentionally missing the deadline the recount is invalid and the count reverts to the previous count.

    It's now certified. Nothing from M.I.A.'s camp. Interested to see if she sues.
