Iowa to vote by mail?
Friday, November 9th, 2007
Iowa’s governor wants to take a good hard look at having residents of his state, from where I just returned, vote exclusively by mail. According to an article in the Gazette, Governor Chet Culver, who was previously Iowa’s Secretary of State, thinks voting by mail might increase turnout and save the state money.
“It’s important to have a discussion about it,” said Culver according to the Gazette. “The reality is that every county in the state is trying to find a way to have a verified paper trail. This would be a good way to do it — or invest millions of dollars in more (voting) machines.”
