On voting day in the US how things are going can tend to
affect how those who haven't voted, vote. For example
years ago in the presidential election many people of a
particular party stayed at home because it was reported
had already lost. If the press can't be stopped from
results they can be fudged.
I propose that a
of positive and negative votes be reported during
and withdrawn after elections for the final tally.
this random factor should encourage more voters to go
and vote the way they think is right.
pedantry error in line 1.
