On Friday, October 7th, 2011 the State of California took a great step in helping America bring it’s voting system out of the dark ages and into the Information Age!
“This law will increase voter registration, increase the accuracy of the registration information, and reduce election costs,” said Mark Church, San Mateo County’s chief election officer.
It most certainly will. It will also help online voting advocates make our case that America’s voting system should be updated, as we are updating and transforming all other aspects of our lives, in a way that encourages full voter participation in our democracy. That means online registration AND online voting itself.
The arguments mounted by the Againsters are becoming more and more illogical. The arguments along with those who make the arguments are becoming as out of touch as our “polling place” voting system itself.
Great job, California!
