8 MARCH 2008

Currently we hear a lot in the news about the voting machines and how they might be used in a fraudulent manner or be hacked by a specific political party in order to achieve victory in elections. How much of this is true and how much is merely a scare tactic.

After all people fear change and going to electronic voting machines is a change and it is coming whether we like it or not, because it makes sense and the voting exercise costs millions of dollars and is never perfect. Electronic voting can solve all these problems or as we are told could create many more.

And what about the future of the democracy and the future of online voting perhaps on your cell phone, your iPod or perhaps your home computer or laptop? We all know that day is coming as well and it could be right around the corner.

Can you just imagine Instant poling for the government, not thru third parties or media. The election results would be instantaneous and you could hold more elections many times per year so people can vote on different kinds of initiatives or on the direction of their government.

This could usher in a whole new age of eDemocracy or it might destroy our republic, as people instantly vote for instant gratification. Hopefully this article is of interest and that is has propelled thought. The goal is simple; to help you in your quest for the best in 2008.
