Poor Ballot Design Could Play Big Role in Election
Poorly designed ballots continue to plague US elections, even after Congress set aside $3 billion to overhaul voting systems to prevent a recurrence of the flawed Florida ballots that deadlocked the 2000 presidential race, a study out today concludes. Problems with confusing paper ballots in 2002, absentee ballots in 2004 and touch-screen ballots in 2006 led thousands of voters to skip over key races or make mistakes that invalidated their votes, according to the study.

Considering that the California Secretary of State acknowledges that 50% of the independent vote in Los Angeles county didn't count during the primaries, I am not surprised. The lack of intense focus on finding an accurate voting system is completely tragic. So many years after the hanging chad, and the basic function of a democracy, VOTING, is still in jeopardy.

I don't understand why this is so tough. To roughly paraphrase Bill Maher, banks don't have a problem figuring out how much money I have. They're not like, "Well, it's about $10,000, give or take a little." It's just counting!
