Are Gant & Litz trying to take credit for something that has been in motion for a long time?

Who’s on First?

Don’t quote me on this, but I think this idea has been in motion by either the SF city clerk’s office, Sue Roust, or both for quite awhile, long before Bobby and Jay-Jay took office;

Instead of designated precincts, voters will be able to cast their ballot at any voting center located throughout the city.

Great idea, way overdue. But I’m wondering why Abbott and Costello get to toot their horns about this? This was something that was probably sitting in both of their IN baskets the first day they took office. And by looks of Litz’s office (watch the video) he needs to decorate with something besides cardboard boxes and manilla folders. I’m just saying.

Sorry, I don’t trust local elections. How did Huether and Tornow get elected? The new system might be a sophisticated method for manipulation. What makes me suspicious is that nazi city administration endorses it. It’s been available for some time, so why now unless it’s rigged?

I trust the city clerk and former treasurer Sue Roust that the system is setup right. We will see, I guess.

Oooof, I can now see the time it takes those little old bags at the polling places to find your name to increase by a thousand fold.

Fuck all of you, I think this is a great idea. I’m sick of trying to figure out where to vote, that’s why I absentee.

BTW, Scott, how was the screening? Good. Bad. So-So?

Fantastic! I’ll probably write something on it tomorrow.

Texas and Oklahoma are moving to eliminate electronic voting due to the potential for fraud, this sec. of state clown is all proud of his convenient system. Costs? Shouldn’t elections be 100% volunteers counting the ballots?
