Planning to Vote Early and Often? Don't Try it in Seminole County, Florida

I like the way this guy thinks.

Seminole County, Florida, has a new supervisor of elections. Here's how he explained what he was doing last night: "I'm a former Army guy, and I know the best way to make things safe and secure is to guard it...."

Some over-eager citizens have already tried to vote early and often in Seminole County. And, got caught. As the 'former Army guy' put it: "We've noticed they've already voted. They remember, oh yes, I did actually. That's right."

Suspicious Officials, Information Technology, and the End of an American Tradition?

Over in Orange County, the election supervisor says that his computer systems will spot a person who's already voted right away. Even if they voted in another county.

This could spell the end of progressive voting: Starting out early in the day and traveling from county to county, casting a ballot for your favorite candidate at each stop.

Much as I like traditions, I can't say that I'm sorry to see this one go.

Whaddaya Know: Voting Twice is Illegal

Voting twice in the same election is a felony, I see. Wow. It's wrong, and illegal!

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
