Voting Devices - 12 picturesAdvanced Photoshop Contest - hi-res entries
America votes to choose its next president today. Since the infamous issues with paper ballots in 2000, when Florida decided the fate of the elections, electronic voting equipment have gradually replaced paper ballots, but these voting machines have their own issues from system glitches to privacy issues to hacking vulnerability. Paper ballots are still used in some polling places in the US and US embassies abroad, as well as in postal voting. The state of New Jersey
(we don't call it hell for nothing!) decided to allow voting by email and fax these elections, and sparked a lot of security concerns as well as counting issues. Online voting is also practiced in some states.
With all the problems with the currently used voting methods, we ask you to design a new (idiot proof or not) voting device, method, or ballot, that will help America choose its next president.
Most importantly, do your civil duty - go and vote today, if you haven't already!
