Ambition this shall tempt to rise,
And moody Madness laughing wild
Amid severest woe.
-from Thomas Gray's "Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College"
I'm not sure I understand the point. You already know who you voted for, and a picture wouldn't convince anyone else of anything. There needs to be a record which is both clear to the voter at the time of the vote, and can be used to verify the accuracy of the votes tabulated by the computer.I've always wondered why they don't have a computer voting machine that counts the votes, prints out a receipt with both a text and barcode version of the vote, then the barcode can be used for a secondary machine count, and the text version could be used to ensure that the barcode matches up to the actual vote, and could be used as a last manual count, if necessary. It doesn't seem like this would be at all difficult, and I don't see why this isn't implemented by now.But in any case, I don't know what good taking a picture will do, though I understand wanting to record your vote, since no one with any authority seems interested in it.
This reminds me that I need to look into absentee voting. I've never done it before, when I've lived out of the country, but I'm very motivated this year.
