KB in Iowa BS: Unsecret ballots (13) RE: BS: Unsecret ballots 18 Oct 11

Without something along these lines all it would take to fix an election would be add in a few fake voting slips and remove a similar number.

This could still be done with the current system. Just put numbers on the new ballots that correspond to the numbers on the ballots that have been removed. It would take a bit more effort but seems quite do-able if someone were intent on fixing an election.

Iowa is a caucus state for the presidential primaries which is decidedly not secret. Everyone stands in a room and joins a group of like minded individuals backing their candidate. I have long assumed this is permissable since this is a party function and not the actual election. It was still odd the first time I went.
