My very latest good idea to streamline voting and save a lot of money:
Establish a web site where anyone can sign on and specify exactly how he will vote on every candidate and every other ballot issue.
Match each voter by computer – sort of like computer dating – with a person who would exactly negate his vote. Those two would be automatically flagged to election officials as having already voted, since the practical effect of both voting would be nil.
A smarter computer program could combine many, many people to exclude large groups who collectively offset one another one-hundred percent.
Come election day, the country would have been narrowed down to just a few voters who actually need to go to the polls. Probably all the rest of the states could stay home, and a total of about 7 people in Florida would need to cast a ballot. It being Florida, six would be disqualified for various reasons.
So if we can find that one remaining person in Florida, think of all the trouble it would save the rest of us! And if we could get him or her to do early voting, we would be done by mid-October.
