I was listening to a story about the afgan elections this morning.

They said that to cut down on people voting more than once ... they were putting an ink mark on peoples thumbs after they voted.

This seems like a good idea.

Maybe some nifty chemists could come up with a "one day tatoo" type chemical.

Get your ballot, get a hand stamp that can't easily be washed off within a day, and off to the voting booth you go.

For the paranoid among us, the stamp could even have "666" on it.

The Dems use absentee ballots to get most of their double dipping votes in. How else would the Democrats registered in both New York and Florida make it to the polls in time.

Yeah, that's what the one I listened to said. Probably the same story on public radio.
