The election showed, quite clearly, that we need a better way to vote. The most efficient method would be voting by Internet. Software similar to what banks use and a personal identification number would assure the system’s security. Most people now have Internet connections either at home or at work, and it’s available at public libraries, too.
Voting by computer would be so much quicker that it could be done before or after working hours or during breaks. Those without computer skills could use absentee ballots with a deadline for mailing that is far enough in advance of voting day so that they could all be counted before the close of voting.
