Did You Fax Or Email Your Vote In The 2012 Elections?

Did you trudge it down to the voting center on Nov. 6th, 2012?

Hey, that’s jumping the gun. First, let me tell you a story.

They say that every adversity can be converted into an opportunity. So, when Hurricane Sandy hit us below our belts and devastated us, we were in a fix. New Jersey residents had to elect a man who would run the government for the next four years and they could not do it because the hurricane had blitzed through the area.

So, the New Jersey’s Division of Elections hit upon a novel idea: fax or email your vote. New Jersey residents embraced the plan. In fact, they hugged and kissed it.

There were a few conditions they had to comply with though:

  1. They had to submit their interest by 5 P.M. on 6 November, 2012.
  2. Then, they had to sign a waiver of secrecy (read it here: http://nj.gov/state/elections/2012-results/directive-email-voting.pdf ) and send it back along with their ballot by 8 PM. on 6 November, 2012.
  3. They also had to fulfill a couple of other formalities, which you can read about here: http://nj.gov/state/elections/2012-results/directive-volume-and-extension.pdf

Once they had complied with all the conditions and sent in their ballot, they were deemed to have casted a valid vote.

The point here is that this faxing or emailing the vote helped these New Jersey people save time and energy, which they used for continuing their rehabilitation and recuperation work.

This has happened today. One day, not too far into the future, not just New Jersey, but the whole of America will be emailing or fax-to-emailing their vote or casting it online. They won’t be faxing it though – that’s because not so far away in the future, there will be no fax device.

Now, let’s get back to our main theme. The one about every adversity being an opportunity in disguise.

Hurricane Sandy and its devastation was the adversity, voting in the election was the need, and faxing or emailing your vote was the opportunity.

Strange but true, a hurricane made us shift more towards technology.

What then, will it take us to switch to an email-your-vote or fax-to-email-your-vote system for the whole of America?

Maybe the rising cost of holding elections, the trees cut down to make ballot paper, the massive administration, the expensive infrastructure, etc., will make us wiser and more technologically-oriented. We also will need stronger online encryption, identification and security systems to make e-voting a reality.

As President Obama would say, a day will come when men of all religions, no matter their color, no matter their occupation, no matter their economic status, no matter their political inclination, will sit down in their homes and cast their vote online or email it across. Amen to that.

Barack Obama Music Taste

Had you missed the Obama’s iPod.Then better read that before this.

This is a very effective campaign tool. For nothing more reveals the personality of a man that he listens to music. When it comes to a U.S. presidential candidate, said music will be scrutinized. This is not the time to confess a guilty passion for Justin Bieber.

Barack Obama did not venture: he told last Monday to the radio station in Cincinnati WIZF its selection time. There are Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, James Brown, The Fugees and Jay Z and Eminem. Obama is also connected with jazz John Coltrane, Gil Scott-Heron and Miles Davis. The President has only made a small mistake diplomatic he did not mention Bruce Springsteen when he campaigned for him. But it does not seem to listen more country music genre so popular with Republicans.

Obama had already revealed his musical tastes in 2008, as today taking care to mix classic and modern history to reach all voters. And to stir even wider, he told the radio station that called there was probably not a group broadcast on the airwaves that was not on his iPod. Now expected Playlist Mitt Romney.

Barack Obama’s iPod

Barack Obama toured his musical tastes during a Monday interview with the radio station WIZF Cincinnati, using eclectic selection of music from his iPod as an argument destination electoral voters he is trying to seduce. Barack Obama said that there was probably not a group, aired on radio invited, who was not on his iPod.

Among the artists mentioned by the President include Stevie Wonder, James Brown, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Jay-Z, Eminem and The Fugees. Jazz musicians like John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Gil Scott-Heron are also part of the list. The president has not mentioned Bruce Springsteen, who is campaigning for him yet, nor country artists who are generally more popular with Republican voters.
