This week i read in the Denver Post an article called Lawmakers kill paper ballot bill this matters because the Electronic machines are conversational and people don't feel fare using them so paper ballots are used giving them a feeling the system is working. The bill proposed that, forced counties to conduct paper ballot elections this year, freeing them to use their controversial electronic voting machines. With this being failed it means that some counties if they chose can use the questionable voting machines. Last year there was a huge problem with the machines messing up the whole election so papers ballots should at least be offered there are at least more accurate. "According to Coffman's office, all but 10 of Colorado's 64 counties have plans to at least offer paper ballots as a backup this year. Coffman urged them to consider the idea last year because of long lines of voters waiting to use the machines in Douglas County in 2006."This would be bad if they messed up again so at least offer paper ballots. This really relates to me because these are the laws and people that are going to base everything i do and if its not a good system the votes could be miscounted. A law or leader could be chosen unfairly. This defently relates to the world because other states might have the same problem and if they see what happened to us they might not make the same mistakes. There leaders would also be chosen fairly. This really does matter because people need there vote to count and that cqant happen if the systems are not working.
