voted electronically again

The first time that I cast a ballot using an LCD touch screen voting machine was in the general election of 2000. There has been much improvement since then. When I voted in the California primary election on Tuesday, the electronic voting machine printed out a paper ballot that I could inspect before casting it. It looked kind of like a receipt from a supermarket cash register.

That’s the good news. Now for the bad news. If the primary election had been held in June, like it was in 1992, California could have been the kingmaker this year. Or queenmaker.
