In AZ, Video Your Vote! Then Watch ‘Em Count It
Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008
According to a local news outlet, Your Valley West, Arizona Secretary of State Jan Brewer took another leap towards making Election Day results in Arizona more transparent and accountable by installing multiple webcams inside all of the State’s vote tabulation rooms.
Arizona is one of two States that currently uses state-wide online voting registration system called EZVoter. The implementation of this system makes registering to vote much more convenient, and perhaps most important, allows interoperability between the States’ various databases rendering electronic voter rolls more accurate, more up-to-date, and more manageable by poll workers and election administrators. So, if you are living in Arizona, here is your suggested Election Day itinerary:
2. Cast your ballot.
4. Watch the election unfold on TV and make sure no funny-business is going down while election administrators count your vote.
It looks like internet video truly is changing the way we vote, making the whole process more transparent. And while we, at Why Tuesday?, applaud these efforts, we also believe that it is not only about the way we vote, but also about the day we vote. We’d all be more comfortable, Arizonans included, if we did not have to fit our voting itineraries into our work-week schedules. For the answer to why we vote on Tuesday click here.
