I said yesterday that Venezuela had an excellent voting system. I did not explain how or why. So here is Caracas Chronicles with a great explanation! From them:
- You vote at an electronic machine;
- The machine prints a voucher, which you drop in a ballot box;
- The machines prints a tally of the votes at the end of the day;
- The machine sends the tallies to Caracas;
- 54% of tables are tallied on the spot, with hand-counts of the vouchers in front of witnesses.
You end with three tallies: the electronic record, the machine print-outs, and the vouchers. Hard to cheat, and easy to recount. (There are rumors of vouchers found dumped in the trash. We will see. I am skeptical.)
Voting is one thing that the Bolivarian Republic does very well, much better than its predecessors.
Florida should be so lucky.
