E-Mail is the best way that our views can be presented to our Legislators. When I send them e-mail I usually get back a “caned” letter that seems to agree with me but it does not provide a means as to weather or not action was taken on the concern and if amendments to bills were made to make them worthless.  On this Webster I will include all my letters to legislators and their answers.   Please feel free to contact me at vern@armory.com

Subject:  Voting Reform, Suggested.

I feel that the absentee mail in ballot is the safest and most accrete way to record the wishes of the voter. Absentee ballots is the best way for workers and senior citizens to vote

Necessary means would be needed to prevent fraud, i.e. large fines for corrosion by spouse or other people.

No voting results should be announced until all ballots are counted, and not until the DAY AFTER ELECTION.

 It is important to the voter to know how many votes were cast for each person or bill, even if the count was too small to make a difference.  All ballots MUST be counted.

If a ballot is rejected the voter must be informed as to why.

The "smorgasbord"  Ballot.

The honorable Kelly Barlean and Barry Shlin

The so-called "smorgasbord" plan would allow a vote to pick a
GOP, Democratic or Libertarian-only ballot, or a "traditional" ballot
 listing all candidates.
 I prefer to vote for the candidate or the issue. I can see a candidate, I can
 talk to him or her, and I can get an answer from the candidate, None of
 which I can get from a political party. Political parties are necessary but
 reform is needed. Political parties have closed door meetings with little
 impute from the public.

A representative should represent first the people in their district and the nation as a whole, Not just the Party nor just the people who voted for them.
