philipballewthis puts a new meaning to their moto "live free or die"02:22
akkThat's great! Wonder if CA will ever follow suit?02:29
philipballewmaybe we as a LoCo should protest the capitol.02:32
philipballewbut ms has so many lobbyists, thet'd say floss is more expensive probably02:33
jbermudesWhat does the Bay Area use? electronic touch screen voting?02:34
jbermudesLA County uses basically stamped ink bubbles that are sort of like SAT-style answer sheets02:34
jbermudesBut I suppose the machines reading it could be hiding some tricks so FOSS would be cool to have for even those02:35
jtatumsanta clara county uses optical reader types - connect these two boxes with a line to vote02:36
jtatumsame as they had in florida. dunno about the rest of the bay.02:36
philipballewplacer county uses punch cards...02:36
jbermudesSo at least there's a paper trail in all of these instances, right?02:37
akkI thought the florida problem was all about the chads (punchcards), not optical scan.02:46
akkMy district (in San Jose) is all mail-in, optical scan. We had touchscreen for a year or two.02:47
jtatumah, good point akk. Let me revise my blanket statement to say orange county, florida :)02:47
