Major Problems At Polls Feared - washingtonpost.com

Major Problems At Polls Feared
 
If there are voting problems this fall it's because the leadership at the state and country level are either totally incompetent or they are taking orders from a higher political power, or they are crooks themselves.  You can't be this bad at this year after year, accidently.
 
I've watched state after state after state after state implement a lottery system, which involves handling millions of dollars, correctly printing tickets and precisely verifying and validating those tickets when claims are made.  Anyone who claims winnings must show ID and pay the appropriate taxes.  All of this is accomplished on a daily basis around the country, without incident.  I've yet to hear about any major flaw in the lottery system of any state. 
 
Yet these same states, after years of "trying" just can't get a simple voting system implemented that validates and correctly processes properly registered voters.
 
I've also never heard of anyone so stupid they couldn't find a 7-11, or was unable to fill out their lottery number card properly.  Yet it's the same people who can't register to vote correctly, who show up at the wrong precinct or who have some other major problem (like hanging chads).
 
Get a grip, people.  If you're too stupid to vote, please don't.
 
And if your country government can't get their act straight and manage an honest election process, don't blame George Bush.
