Bob & Harvey's 3-Step "Ohio Plan" for fair and reliable voting and vote counts is the title of an article by Bob Fitrakis & Harvey Wasserman. They contend that, given all of the dirty shenanigans of the past several election cycles, if 3-steps are followed, a more fair and more reliable election will ensue in the fall. Here are the 3 pillars of their argument:
1. AUTOMATIC VOTER REGISTRATION, WITH SIGNATURE VERIFICATION
2. UNIVERSAL HAND-COUNTED PAPER BALLOTS:
3. A THREE-DAY NATIONAL VOTING HOLIDAY, WITH BALLOTS HAND-COUNTED BY STUDENTS:
The article contains reasons for each of these planks in their argument.
No doubt the GOP Spin Machine has been whirling feverishly to combat these three ideas so that they can keep the same-old, same-old hold on election day. Take your Dramamine® and watch for the GOP spin.
