Florida's new Voting machine (onion)

labrea_gwOctober 5, 2012

MIAMI Responding to widespread criticism of voting procedures that have plagued the state since the 2000 election, the Florida Elections Commission announced Thursday its plan to experiment with new 600-lever voting machines.

The 22-foot-tall, 11-foot-wide steam-powered machines, which Florida officials are hailing as "the future of voting," each feature more than 45 separate panels of levers, along with an intricate series of valves, knobs, cranks, pumps, and switches, all reportedly designed to help ease the electoral process and ensure accurate balloting this November.

"We hope these advances will allow Floridians to go to the polls this fall fully confident their votes will be counted," said Elections Commission general counsel Tim Conner, explaining the "completely intuitive" machinery's use of diagonally, vertically, and horizontally shifting levers, as well as 270 separate pistons designed to ensure chads are fully punched. "Voters simply place their ballot in the machine; enter their name, address, and social security number using the corresponding alphanumeric lever panels at the top; and then maneuver the remaining 564 levers to select a candidate."

AH gee it's only a joke if you laugh!

After the way Florida stole the 2000 election, I wouldn't trust any method they came up with. This method is probably no more untrustworthy (which is to say, trustworthy) than any other they've used in the past!
