Here’s a suggestion (adapted from Guadalajara, Mexico’s voting procedure):

1. Meet in a neighborhood place the last Thursdays of each month.* Meeting times are by precinct (neighborhood – about 300 houses).

2. One officer from each of the parties is elected to count votes while everyone watches.

3. Bring paper ballots with pictures of political party, and the candidate or other symbol for what is being voted on. This should be on a web site and agreed upon across the state.

4. Vote and watch your neighbors count your vote. You can use a special color pen or fancy mark.  When neighbors agree on the vote results, call it in to a regional place that is posting neighborhood votes and then city votes. Watch it live via the TV news.

5. Each neighborhood is responsible for verifying its vote! Simple! Also easy, accurate and cheap voting!


* The suggestion is to meet every month because this can be a time to share information and conduct public opinion polls.
