I went to vote at my new polling place last night. It was to be the first time I'd voted using the new electronic system, as opposed to the old levers, and I was excited! Yay, technology!
So imagine my surprise when I signed in and the guy handed me a piece of paper.
"Um ... paper?", I said. "What ... is this?"
"It's your ballot!", the guy explained. "Take it over to a privacy booth, fill it out with one of the pens provided, then take it to the scanner and enter it face up!"
Paper? Pens? Little circles to fill in, like on the old multiple-choice tests in high school?
I think we're going backward. I want my levers back.
