Is this man...
- Shredding paper
Answer: #2 Voting! - although #3 could possibly be true.
A couple of weeks ago, Miss Vero was flippin through the channels and saw Indian River County Elections Supervisor, Kay Clem, doing a demonstration with the new voting machines that we'll be using in the up coming elections. We wondered if the demonstration would be on the Election web site or TCPalm, but try as do, we cannot find it. We thought maybe TV 10, but getting information from there is like collectin hen's teeth. The TV 10 website has been "under construction" since before we started blogging: http://www.wwcitv.com/
The Vote Indian River County website does not show a demonstration, but tells us that it is a voters responsibility to "Familiarize himself or herself with the operation of the voting equipment in his or her precinct ." http://www.voteindianriver.com/content.aspx?id=237
Now, we don't know about y'all, but Miss Vero is mighty skeptical about these types of things and sure 'nuf after a little checkin, some other folks with the same Sequoia voting machine are not convinced either: http://blog.wired.com/27bstroke6/evoting/index.html
Another blogger in Connecticut, even suggested that the similarity to a paper shredder was all too obvious: http://ctbob.blogspot.com/2006/09/susan-bysiewicz-demonstrates-new.html
Even the PJ ran an article about our voting machines that was met with overwhelming apathy: http://www.tcpalm.com/news/2008/jul/01/30gtnew-voting-system-fails-test/?feedback=1#comments
What do y'all think? Should we be concerned about the candidates, the charter issue or just plain concerned that our little ole vote is even counted? Miss Vero sure do wish Gubna Charlie would stop gallivantin around and provide us with that paper receipt he promised: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/02/us/02voting.html?n=Top/Reference/Times%20Topics/Subjects/P/Presidential%20Election%20of%202000&pagewanted=all
Oh my goodness is right! This election year has got our head spinnin! Now y'all know that the only party that Miss Vero subscribes to is the cocktail party, that being said we believe it's time for a little party action of our own!
Have a good weekend kids, we hear WPTV will be broadcasting the news from the Driftwood at 5 o'clock today, maybe we'll see y'all there...
