Voting Made Easy

June 02, 2002

Re "Taco Bell Heir Serves Up More Convenient, Easier Way to Vote," May 27: In the context of the last election cycle, when some polling places went unattended, others had staff but no paperwork and the typical staffer was a distracted part-timer, not a regular county official, the notion that voter registration should be added to election day duties is laughable.

There is no way to test, in advance, how many "sudden impulse" voters this new option might add to the ranks of those who care, but you can estimate how many millions it will cost to make this into law. If Rob McKay really wants to help the election process, perhaps he could use the $10 million or more that he may spend on this initiative for voter education or even voting equipment.
