Did everyone catch the premiere of the new HBO documentary, Hacking Democracy last night? Wow. We were speechless and very, very concerned. Rodrigo and I were talking about what could be done. I suggested a sort of receipt. You know, like a "just in case" sort of deal. I mean, you get a receipt for everything else, why not for something as important as this? Rodrigo, the techy surprised me by saying that the best solution would be strict paper ballots. He says that fake receipts would start popping up all over. My solution to this is some sort of transaction number and the person's id number printed on the receipt as well. I don't know, but something has to be done. I feel so unsafe heading into next week's elections. Anyway, if you didn't watch it, you should. It played on HBO, so I'm sure it'll be on heavy rotation for a while.
