There were a surprising number of people lined up to vote, including a guy in an Obama shirt. That was a nice touch, funny how he had to turn it inside out, wonder who made that request.
Also to Obama shirt guy who declared 'I want to vote on a paper ballot because I want a paper record', dude the touch screen voting machines produce a paper record, you can even review it before your ballot is considered 'cast'. So even with the voting machine it is virtually impossible for 'the man' to take your vote away or hide it.
Yes there are political folks involved as election judges and processing judges on election day, however with the touch screen voting it is about a million times harder to monkey with your vote than is was with punched cards.
Finally I think I speak for everyone who works as a election judge, tally judge or party observer on election day when I say... I have yet to meet nor will I ever meet a single candidate for office who's election it would be worth me going to jail for.
