In Alaska They are Still Counting

I just read an article on the Washington Post http://voices.washingtonpost.com/thefix/2008/11/alaska_senate_count_the_votes.html?hpid=topnews about the 2008 elections in Alaska to determine their United State Senator.  I was really surprised to learn that they have not determined the outcome of such election yet, especially because the incumbent, Republican Senator Ted Stevens had been found guilty of seven federal felony charges. However, what really alarmed me most was the explanation given in the article for the delay in the determination of whether Stevens (R) or Mark Begich (D) won the U.S. Senate seat. The explanation given is that there are some ninety thousand (90, 000) votes that were cast early before the election day that have not been adjudicated yet. It really puzzles me how a measure that has been adopted to help voters’ turn out and to make voting more convenient can be implemented in such a way that it can delay the certification of a winner by weeks! I may be very naïve but I thought that with the level of technological advances that we have nowadays that we would have been able to vote from our computers at home.  Maybe no Senators and Representatives would be necessary in the future, it can be a direct democracy where we could all vote directly for the bills we want to pass and even submit our own pieces of legislation.  This is just a dream. I guess we are not there yet, especially if voting early means that you get to know the results late.

Wow, that's amazing--they

Wow, that's amazing--they STILL aren't finished? No wonder why my friends abroad find the hodgepodge of approaches to voter balloting and polls very discontorting and vaguely terrifying.
