ramblings from the noisedoctor

what I don’t get about the voting process

Okay. There’s one thing I’ve never understood about our voting process.

You walk in, they check your name on the voter records. That’s fine. But, then they hand you a ballot and write down your ballot number next to your name.

So, if our voting is supposed to be private, why are they writing down your ballot number so that someone (with a lot of free time on their hands) could later match your name with your votes?

How does that make any sense? Or, is Pennsylvania just weird in the way it handles the polls?

  1. Same here in Georgia. But then, seeing as how your average poll worker is 142, how many of them have a lot of free time left?
