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.
