    but how long do you suppose it will take them to demand a ballot printout?

    Hell, I wouldn't put it past them to lobby Congress to get a law passed that all votes produce a printout. Their motive will be ulterior and couched as patriotic red white and blue.
    Then when that is done, demand proof who you voted for.

    Don't for a minute think they are not dreaming up some concoction to have more control and say into an employees personal life, including voting.

      I can't get one from my polling station.

      As to trying to get a law passed, good luck with that.

      It would never happen for a simple reason: people take voting pretty seriously -- including the secret ballot.

      Remember SOPA?
      The big and powerful corporate interests can do a lot of things, but there are limits.

      And there is that darned Constitution thingy, though, after the vote on ACA, maybe it doesn't really exist any more.

        became "people" I figured they're brazen enough to try anything.
        Then again, maybe they've pushed to far already.
        Let us hope they get the message and step back.
