    could maybe still work an amendment into some compromise bill elsewhere to help provide more federal oversight and uniformity into elections, increase penalties for vote manipulation, introduce standards to ensure redundancy and transparency into vote tabulation- both electronic and paper ballots- and to make sure there's no BS blocking eligible voters from going to the polls.

    Virtually every other legit democratic country takes the voting process very seriously and has uniform standards for all voters and regions. Heck, even China often uses an electoral process to pick local and community leaders, and they have tough penalties against shenanigans as well as redundant systems to make sure the votes are accurately counted.

    The mess in 2012 in Florida yet again among other irregularities is proving to be a major embarrassment to the USA's reputation as a functioning democracy overseas. It has to be addressed for the good of the nation.
