While voting this morning, I used the machine I have used for every election I have voted in. If you are a privileged Northeastern citizen, you know what I’m talking about. The machine with the curtain and the levers; a machine with a familiar and wonderful design. But it seems that these machines are going into forced retirement. And if previously-mentioned Princeton celebrity Edward Felten (along with, um, every news organization) can be believed, the replacement machines are looking quite menacing indeed.
So that’s why, if I must say goodbye to my curtained metal paradise, I would like to vote with this outdated right wing e-mail forward!
Make voting cute again!
