Voting's Underway. God Help Us.

Posted By on Tue, Nov 7, 2006 at 8:55 AM

Well, the polls are open. Is everything going smoothly across the country? Um, no.

There's no word of any serious problems here in Pima County yet (But, hey! It's still early!). There was some confusion and minor panic at Precinct 086 this morning. I was slogging through the 1,654 ballot propositions in my little voting cubbie when the precinct's electronic voting machine got jammed. Calls to higher-ups were made, and the problem was easily fixed, but the poor precinct worker who was heading things up was unsure whether one of the ballots jammed had actually been counted. It was quite a scene.

Of course, I spent last night watching HBO's documentary Hacking Democracy. It was stunning. I highly recommend catching it.

Now I am paranoid. I am not sure this is a bad thing.
