PAUL GREENBERG: Minority report

One man’s sad experience at the polls

By Paul Greenberg

This article was published May 30, 2018 at 4:30 a.m.

To hear Arkansas' secretary of state tell it, all went well at the polls in this month's primaries: The number of Arkansans voting was up over the tally recorded in 2014, which was the last time this state held an off-year election in similar, highly partisan political circumstances.

Completely agree, Paul. What if those two tight races in this past election had been in Ouachita or Union counties? Electronic voting machines are great for recording votes easily and counting them after. But, in case of a recount the paper tape always saves the day until we have more secure electronic voting methods (and they do exist).

I also have qualms about many small town election judges.

Both now and in my former state, many election judges are retired women who refuse to give up that position due to their ego or the extra few $$$$$$$$$$$ they earn that day.

Some of them are border line senile and get confused easily.
Seniority does not excuse poor job performance.
