go out and paper vote!

for a nation dubbed "the start-up nation", it is surprising that in the year 2013 we are still using paper ballots rather than electronic/online/digital voting systems...

regardless of that, GO OUT AND VOTE, if you haven't yet!!!

  1. Honestly I like paper ballots, E Ballots can be hacked in far to many ways to make me happy.

  2. A friend of mine pointed out recently that if E-voting is allowed from one's home, this could open up the door to all sorts of easy ways for employers/party bosses/union leaders/plain old crooks to unfairly pressure people to vote for their man.

    Imagine if the strong man (who may be able to get you fired from your job, or influence your life in some other way [throw your kids out of Talmud Torah?]) in your area tells you that since you will vote from your own computer, you had better not vote until his representative comes by your house to "supervise" how you vote online!

    With everyone having to go behind the screen (where no one can see which voting slip we have picked), at least no one can force us to vote his way by being with us when we actually vote.

    We should move up to a more modern way of voting (voting machines/computers) at the polling places, but I think that my friend is right that E-ballots for voting at your home computer should be avoided.

  3. fwiw:


  4. In a country this size, paper ballots actually make the most sense. Sometimes low-tech is good.

  5. Definite plus. Keep the boxes. Keep the paper slips. Keep the manual counting afterwards with multiple eyes overseeing. It's also probably much cheaper to recycle the same thousands of ballot boxes for all elections rather than computer systems that will need to be repurchased every three-four years.

  6. Sorry to all my friends living in BS. It looks like you are stuck with an incompetent hack for the next five years and BS is heading toward becoming another hareidistan. Anglo Olim, time to jump ship.

  7. MJ maybe a spammer, but ynet has posted an Abutbol win- 51-45.
