    Yeah, I get that, my question is, why do they? Why not just count ballots? Simple. Count the ballots and keep them until whenever.
    I'm in Canada and I've gotta say, I don't think electronic balloting would fly in this country. I don't think people would trust that process.

    i think they were put into use to avoid corruption in paper ballot systems.

    Hm.
    Given the presence of multiple scrutineers of the paper ballot system, I have to wonder which would be easier to tamper with.

    I live in Oregon where we are blessed to have Vote By Mail. That means that my ballots are mailed to me, I fill them out at home, in my car, on my lunch, wherever I want to. Then I simply sign it and mail it back to be counted. The biggest wait I ever have is waiting for my wife to finish her ballot so that we can run them out to the mailbox.

    That would be nice. We have absentee voting, but you have to have a valid reason to do it, so I'd have to lie.

    If you're interested in pushing a campaign to get VBM implemented in your state, I can put you in touch with THE guy for VBM. My wife's cousin is the guy who put it together in Oregon. He's a strong conservative who got no support from the Reps. and ended up working with the Dems., so he knows how to "cross the aisle" to things done. He's worked with quite a few states in the development of their future plans for VBM and is passionate about this.

    It depends on where you live and how privileged you are.
