The Party of Smaller Government

A bill to ban cell phones in polling places

    I can see banning recording devices from the booth (union rep: record yourself casting the right votes for a cash bonus) but we need to be able to document fraud and law violations at the actual polling location.

  2. Sigivald Says:

    What Mischief said – there are good reasons for a limited ban in the booth (though also reasons against, especially if you’re using an electronic voting machine; it’d be nice to document a misvote*).

    (* That said, I work with touchscreen systems professionally, and I’d be shocked if any of the reported ones were nefarious rather than “nobody bothered to recalibrate the stupid screen”.)

  3. Ian Argent Says:

    There’s at least some places that ban taking pictures in the voting booth specifically as a measure to prevent vote-selling.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
