Choose The Paper Ballot!

There have already been numerous problems with voting machines, especially in Indiana, where voting hours have already been extended in a couple of precincts.

The Sierra Sun reports that in Placer and Nevada Counties you will automatically be offered the paper ballot and can choose if you want to use the Diebold machines. Even if it might be more convenient, the voting machines have been too unreliable in the past and it looks like this might be the case again today. If you want your vote to count and you can use a paper ballot then do so!

A more or less fun fact: The first four letters of Diebold form the German word "Dieb" which means "thief" in English. Appropriate, don't you think?
