This is an election year. It has not heated up yet, but it will soon. As it does, I encourage people to think about election reform topics. These include the need for voter-verified paper records of votes, instant runoff voting, and perhaps abolishing the electoral college.
I am still in light-blogging mode, so I will not discuss each of these. However, I encourage people to do a little background research on them, using their favorite search engine. One hint: check out this post at Middle Earth, regarding the electoral college.
