“Elections belong to the people.”Abraham Lincoln
Just like the adage, better ten guilty men go free than one innocent man go to jail, better to accept the slight risk of voter fraud than to disenfranchise one legal voter.
It could not be simpler under the law, under any rational analysis, or under common sense…
You keep counting until every single vote is counted and accept the results. That is the foundation of our democracy.
And to those who sat by the sidelines and choose not to vote, such an act is not only unpatriotic, it is a deliberate attack on those who gave their lives for the right.
To choose not to assert your right to vote, regardless of any rationalization to the contrary, is nothing less than an act of treason to your country.
Whatever the final results are, this election should cause us to re-examine the process of voting and insure that future elections be characterized by efficiency and higher confidence in the process.
