Magnetic Polls

Friday, October 24, 2008


When the exit polls are released from the quarantine room at 5pm EST on election day, they’ll be available to the major news broadcasters. They’ll also be incomplete, probably misleading and almost certainly leaked over the internet. senior political writer David Kuhn says what the polls will certainly show is how potent and tempting the information is.

When will this country modernize its antiquated voting system?

At the very least, there should be a universal 24 hour voting period on election day with ALL polls opening and closing at the same time. No exit poll results should be made public until the polls close.

Preferally, election day should also be moved to a Saturday.

Make these 2 changes and I'm willing to bet that voter turnout will increase significantly.
