    Here's another perfect example of government waste, big time. Didn't we exchange "paper ballots" stuffed in a box, years ago, for modern lever machines? And, just because Florida was behind the times, HAVA was pushed down our throats... the whole nation was told they had to switch to different voting machines. Does anyone know how much this has cost taxpayers? And will continue to from now on, as these machines must be stored in climate controlled facilities. You think elections are free? Ask your supervisor the cost of just one election. And, won't it be fun if the machine breaks down and the votes have to be counted by hand; could be we'll wait once again a month or more, until they can decide who won...certainly not the taxpayer. I guess I'll just vote absentee from now on; save me standing in a line, waiting for voters to fill in the boxes, then be directed somewhere else to cast their "paper ballot". What a mess!
