And here's a short list that renders most of your points invalid (like what happens to so many people's votes); The Electoral system? Gerrymandering? "Super" Delegates? Debates only two party? Money controlling/deciding elections? Some outdated voting machines running Windows XP? Need ranked choice voting system? Need paper ballots? Provisional ballot fraud? Repub backed Interstate Crosscheck deleting legitimate voters? Voter suppression by lack of voting machines in lower income areas? Unverifiable proprietary voting machine software? DNC/RNC rigging?

After all of the _"candidates"_ are all bought and paid for, the people are permitted to select their favorite so they are fooled in to thinking they made a difference and their _"vote counts."_ That aside, one vote cannot possibly mitigate the myriad of crimes the US Tyranny, from local on up, daily perpetrates against the people. What'd I win?!

The mother -- who's eyes, clitoris, and larynx have already long been removed, and her vagina sewn shut -- is ritually devoured by the speaker of the house and president pro tem, who then rip the baby out of her womb and declare it President-King.

This is stupid that Alaska gets to see the result and can still vote, in Canada, every voting poll close at the same time like if they where in the same time zone.
Vilmar Moccelin (1 month ago)
Brazil uses a simple offline machine in all the elections for a long time (1996), and despite some "crying" of people that don't trust the system (including the actual president) never a proof of failure or breach was demonstrated or even the results was questioned in a meaningful way by any party or candidate... People with 40 yo or less usually never voted on paper around here! In the paper time you can ask and hear undisputable histories about fraud, like, for exemple, one of my mother that said that her candidate in the municipal elections don't have any votes in her electoral zone... If she voted how the candidate don't have any vote? And when she tell the candidate he wasn't surprised...

Aside from their election needing serious reforms, they need to stop using electronic voting, not just because it is not secure but also because it is impractical. While they have turn election into an obscene industry itself, election is generally done every 4 years. So it is impractical to maintain, update, upgrade electronics you only use once or twice every 4 years, where pen and paper can do a much better job. The only countries that frankly qualify for an electronic voting system are countries that have already had most of their governmental system digitized. They would already have an existing network that is constantly being maintain, update, upgrade with constant security.

Dag-Erling Smørgrav (1 month ago)
Handwritten ballots are not a secure election method as they may allow someone with access to the ballots (including poll workers and election observers) to tie a particular ballot to a particular voter, which makes vote buying possible. The most secure method is the French system of preprinted ballots placed in an envelope which is dropped into a transparent ballot box. Any identifying mark (even a fold or tear or dog-ear) on the ballot or the envelope invalidates the ballot.

No wonder voter turnout is low, they fucking close at 6pm. A lot of people don't work 9-5,and even then it's not like their local voting place is close to their work so by the time they can get there it's probably already over.

The answer is: internet/web voting. https is already more secure than voting machines, encrypted and secure. We can give voters one time certificates that can only be used once, can be verified by additional data provided by the user, etc. At the end of the day a voter would have to actually give away their right to place that vote, which is an individual decision. Such a system would be more secure, save huge amounts of money, eliminate fraud, and increase voter turnout due to not having to attend in person.
