Norm Conrad

One of the many problems with the "talking filibuster", is that the party that supports the filibuster can tag team so that only a couple members have to be on the floor during it while the entire opposition must be present in order to maintain a quorum.

Tell us, Mike Weisman, about what you have seen. I support mail-in elections and worked hard for our county (Snohomish) to move to mail-in ballots instead of black box voting (computer-dependent elections). I think that our county may have been the first to switch to all mail-in voting. We did research and found that the discrepancies between computer vs. paper, mail-in ballots in recounts were much greater in wired black box voting machines.

I am in the Election Systems Reform camp and align with Katherine Gehl’s theory that getting away from partisan primaries and plurality voting will have the biggest impact.
