Bill D BS: 2020 national election, USA - BIDEN wins Nov 7 (722* d) RE: BS: 2020 national election, USA 01 Nov 20


Statistics about how many people can vote in X time period need to specify whether that is per machine or in one voting site. When we vote in person, there are about 12 booths in the room, with 2-3 tabulating machines to feed then into.

Once again I emphasize that the biggest problem with our elections... besides the outmoded electoral college... is that individual states can set times, days, registration rules, I.D. rules, etc..etc. that make fairness a matter of who runs that state's system.

   Our country grew gradually over a couple of centuries when special circumstances dictated how things were done. Now, communication and travel make it possible to put every state on a similar, if not identical, system of registration and voting.
*IF* the electoral college were gone, every citizen would have an equal say in who was president! Having 6-8 states determine the winner every 4 years is absurd!! I am sick of fretting about Florida and Ohio every time.
