I enjoy the experience of voting, so I'm grateful that for some votes - such as the national election - the Australian Electoral Commission establishes polling stations for New Zealand within some of its offices. But I had to scan my vote for the flag referendum earlier this year.
It's not really e-vote for us, and you have to physically go to the voting booth. You just happen to type your vote in a machine like this.



It just simplifies the process of counting the votes. Also, the machines are not connected online; the data is transported to a data center at the end of the voting, where it's uploaded to the election board (actually, what we call High Electoral Court, a subsidiary body of the Supreme Court, which runs the electoral system).

That's fantastic. I'm having a right shitty day but this really cheered me up.

I'm glad that Billy Gumboot the Goat, former President of the Republic of Whangamomona, got a shout-out in the article too.
Always happy to entertain!

Meanwhile, as Kaine heals the wounds as a placeholder President, liberals can go ahead and finally nominate their candidate in 2020, getting someone that actually excites the nation and would be a big help down ticket.

So many delusions. Many wow.

I particularly enjoyed the part where you suggested that Clinton should win just to be a token achievement and then step down.

That's essentially what it is since it's not like Clintonism is really a political sphere of belief that many actually subscribe to.

That definitely sounds superior to some of the options that have been proposed here. But I doubt even that would get up in the current climate because of the abject failure of the census making people wary of moving away from paper.

And what form of voting does Brazil have? This sort of thing would be convenient in Australia's preferential system for providing quick results for the Senate, where voters in larger states sometimes have over 100 candidates to rank (if they vote below the line for individuals rather than above the line for parties). The Senate count is notoriously slow. On the other hand, I am unsure if a machine system could present a ballot as simply and effectively as the paper version does, for the purposes of the voter marking preferences.

The incident actually happened in a West Kendall residence. Different from Kendall.

Also, I didn't know they shared a house together.

Hillary Clinton's twitter account tweeted this, "How to choose between the most corrupt, least popular candidates". Just drop out already warmonger.

Yeah, but it seems as if Trump hasn't gotten the memo. Or rather, I think he got it, but he hasn't been able to read it with his short attention span. So he's still staying in the race. Hopefully the people around him have the good sense to call it a day after next week Tuesday.

Hillary's the warmonger when Trump won't rule out using nukes and would walk away from alliances that have safeguarded a significant chunk of global stability for the past seventy years?!

Sure, she's more hawkish than I'd like, but she sure as shit isn't the candidate more likely to provoke a large scale ground war.

I'm guessing you didn't read? It's ok, all the other Trump supporters fall for the click bait too.

This ought to be far greater a media sensation than those bloody overdone emails.

It won't be, of course.

I just found out about this connection between Putin (KGB) and Trump and a server in Russia connected with a Trump server in the US.
There is absolutely no mention about this on the news.
All the media is talking about is the "October surprise" of more emails
and legalizing pot.

That would be counted as a vote for Trump though.
