Upon reading Mr. Elfers’ column last week concerning Georgia voting laws (“Georgia’s voting laws more about staying in power than race,” published April 21), my frustration level began to rise. How can another layer of security and verification possibly be a bad thing? Why does he always try to spin things against the Republican party?
I personally know of someone that received four ballots in the mail, addressed to previous owners of his house. He could have filled them out if he wanted to, and who would be the wiser?
The big question in my mind, is why don’t we have an app for voting? It could be designed with the same protocols that are used by banks; logging in with secure password and two-step authentication. Banks deal with millions of dollars, and are able to keep track of every penny, right?
Come on, let’s step into the electronic age!
