Ok there is just NO WAY to screw up a ballot in Oklahoma and I wish other states would adopt this plan (Even though you are at risk of getting a paper cut at the end of this process). You go in, you MUST show ID, you must be a registered something or another., and you MUST sign in.
Then, you go in and get handed your ballot, your ballot has candidates on one side and an unfinished arrow on the other pointing to what candidate you want. You are handed a "Felt" pen, and you MUST fill in the arrow which is just a little line from the beginning of the arrow to the end. Whoopie, that was hard!
You stick the ballot in the machine, the machine WILL suck it out of your hand faster than a bolt of lightning can hit the ground (Actually it's ground to air lightning but that's a discussion for another day) you can see where your vote was just counted, and of course unless you are wearing gloves, you get a nice paper cut :-) Never fails, paper cuts.
But, no hanging chads, pregnant, swinging or otherwise. No complicated touch the machine, no poking with a pen through a ballot that might not count in the end, and no pulling levers.
Now why would it be such a hardship for other states to adopt this style of voting?
