Darwin is laughing. One down, many to go.

This line from the PD concerns me "The street racing ordinance would also allow for the impounding and/or forfeiting of vehicles."
Been there years ago, LEOs would pull people over for "hard acceleration as indication of street racing" or some other nonsense. This would give bad LEOs an excuse to steal and destroy personal property from law abiding citizen. I don't see this turning out well.

Unlawful exhibition of power and acceleration - or more commonly known as a burnout. I got one in my '67 Camaro.

If Massachusetts LEO's caught you laying rubber the ticket would read "Failure to use care when starting." :-)

That’s the kind of ticket you frame.

A ticket is understandable. But forfeiture of the vehicle?

44 uncounted thumb drives discovered after election.

Remind me what was wrong with paper ballots?

Paper ballots and locked ballot boxes are the only way to go.

I like Collin County's current system. We insert a card into the machine and use the touch screen interface to fill out the ballot. We are then given the opportunity to review the ballot on the screen before we hit the "Print" button. After our ballot is printed, we can once again review our choices that were printed on the physical card before we insert it into the machine to be counted.

Best of both worlds in my opinion; ease of use of the touch screen devices, but has the physical paper ballot that can be re-counted in the event of an issue.
