After watching Hacking Democracy, all I can say is, "Wow, what a documentary!"
My high school Civics teacher ended our final class of my freshmen year with this quote: "If you take one thing out of this class it better be this: VOTE! A lot of people have fought for this right so all of you can. If you have one duty as a member of a democracy, it's to vote! Please, please, please vote."
I turned 18 just before the 2004 election, and have voted in 2004, 2006 and 2008. I have also voted in some primary elections. I believe everyone should vote. But if the votes aren't being tallied correctly -- What's the point!?
I feel the Minnesota SoS Mark Ritchie runs a tight office. I have yet to hear much criticism about how his office handled the 2008 Senate election between Franken and Coleman. But after watching Hacking Democracy, can I really be sure my votes were counted correctly?
I was appalled at the situation in Florida. After so much attention was brought upon the state after the 2000 Presidential election, the documentary proved that not much changed when another presidential election was held four years later.
I would like to see more done to ensure the accuracy of elections. Thanks to the people who helped bring us Hacking Democracy, this may soon become a reality.
