drive-through voting

November 7th, 2004 § 0 comments

as high as voter turnouts were, it is still a pain to go and vote and the process could be simplified.

i propose drive-through voting, as this would not require a new infrastructure. to start with a reasonable suggestion, let’s consider atm’s. banks could be legally required to offer voting services if the customer requests it. with an upload of your voter registration at your request, voting can be made into an easy atm transaction. identity and data verification is something banks do anyway.

a harder case to make, but one that would yield yet higher turnout, is for a fast food drive-through. admittedly, the line at my local mcdonald’s occasionally exceeds that at my polling station, but at least you can get “fries with that.”

What's this?
