Maybe It's Time For Doing Away With Total Anonymous Voting

      We have talked a lot about our vote being secret, but where we are heading in many of these 'purple states' is we are going to have continual close elections and recounts for years to come. I am watching some of these recounts and we are going to reach the point where neither side is going to have any confidence in the election results.

      Just in this election it has already been admitted that unvalidated and unsupervised provisional ballots were dumped in with the regular votes contrary to law. The problem is once a ballot is dumped into the 'big pile' it can not be located and removed even if it is later discovered it was invalid. Let's say for example someone calls in a tip to police that a group of people have voted illegally during early voting. You can conduct an investigation and determine they had falsified their voter registration form...you could prosecute them if you want...but the one thing you can never do is restore the votes that were stolen from lawful voters.

      I am ready to give up 'a little' privacy in exchange for elections security. Let me give an example.

      Let's say you have a 1000 voters on you voter roles, you would logically print 1000 ballots. Let's say you have two voter precincts. You would issue 500 ballots (#1 to 499) to the first precinct and the rest to the second precinct.

      The first person to vote would get ballot #1 and their voter ID number would be recorded on a master list. voter #2 would get ballot #2 ...on an on. If ballot #3 got messed up for some reason there were be a procedure for confirming that voter #3 has also been reissued ballot #7. (ballot #3 would be retained but would not show up in total votes cast) At the end of the election if you have 50 ballots left over (plus messed up ballots) in each location you should be able to show them on the master log to confirm those ballots were never used. (this is a standard cash handling procedure for those who sell concert tickets....your cash receipts must match your tickets sold and unsold)

      Now if it is determined during the voting or recount process that voter #75 was a fraudulent voter you can go to the master list and determine they were issued ballot #75 pull it out of the box and deduct the votes they cast in every race. You can write some kind of procedure that this master list goes under immediate seal and only a special judge can give out information from the master list.

      My point is ....it would provide a way to remove fraudulent ballots while maintaining 99.9% secrecy of how someone voted.

      Now I personally don't care who at the elections office knows how I voted, I would be happy to to put my name address and phone number on the back of my ballot if that helped...(so long as my ballot was never subject to someone putting it on the internet)

          I haven't been on Yabberz much as life has been busy. Today I want to share the story of my Father In Law, Joseph Martin Cannaday. He passed peacefully in hospice at the age of 91. While gathering information for his funeral I found he served in WW2. Not something he talked about much. He was on the ship the Topica in 1945. He lived a wonderful life with 3 children and a wife of 63 yrs. He was the owner of the East Coast franchise of Fred Astaire Dance Studios which he sold at the age of 85. So in honor of his military service and his life of dance, I wanted to post a song.I love you dad and pray your next journey in eternity is full of love and that as your son said "You are teaching the angels to dance. https://youtu.be/RV-Z1YwaOiw Codeman is on active duty but will be sent home for your funeral.

              The first F-35Bs arrived to the U.K. in June. Britain is set to buy 138 F-35s and plans to put a squadron of 12 F-35s on the HMS Queen Elizabeth. The HMS Prince of Wales will also carry F-35s.

                  'Rage-aholic' Trump Launched A 'Coup' By Booting Sessions, Warns Carl Bernstein | HuffPost

                  The Rule of Law obliterated. Much worse than Nixon! Carl Bernstein should know. He says in this op-ed that Trump is taking steps that amount to a coup of the U.S. Government.

                  I agree completely. Trump wants to supplant our form of government with a criminal oligarchy. But, isn't that treason?

                  Carl doesn't pull any punches. But, then, he's done this before!
