We Should Be Better At This By Now

The sorry state of ballot counting in the US. An LA Times article. Among it's interesting points: Alaska has more registered voters than voting age citizens, and this bit -- "Indiana, which encourages voting with sign-ups by mail and at driver's license bureaus, has jammed its registration lists with hundreds of thousands of people who should not be on them. They include felons, the dead and many who have registered repeatedly." Our balloting system, if you can call it that, is a joke.
