When I Voted Today - I Thought It Was A Secret Ballot...

...and had I turned around and seen a camera taking my picture like this, I would have raised holy hell in the polling place and contacted the FBI to investigate who had violated the sanctity and secrecy of the polling place. It is ironic, a camera looking over folks shoulders as they vote and those little blue voting kiosks being called "privacy booths" by the poll workers! If cameras, looking over your shoulder while you vote, are not intimidating then just what are they supposed to be. I don't know if I could ever vote again in such an exposed booth.

What would you call it: spying, voter intimidation, ballot-gate. I wonder,
just how many cameras were around this one small circle of voters - let
alone around the voters in every other polling place in New York State!

Fuck the government and or the press invading our privacy - especially in our homes and our polling places. Nothing is sacred anymore, ALTHOUGH OUR BALLOTS SHOULD BE SACRED AND SECRET. We need a major overhaul in everything political and to do with the government and we need it soon.

All the best,
