I voted today

Fairly easy. I want to follow the old Chicago Democrat mantra - Vote early, and vote often.

Actually, we have early voting set up with the new electronic voting machines.

First, I was required to supply a picture ID card. Great idea, I said. Does this mean we will require ID cards for all voters? No, just for the early voters.

Well, it's a start.

The machines were laid out in a large room where the voting judges could see everything. If I were inclined to, I would find it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to tamper with the machines without someone noticing.

So, that went well. I cast my 3 votes (Sheriff, County Commissioner, and School Bond), and that was it.

Now, if only I could trust them to count the votes correctly.
