Voting System is Down
The supervisors will again vote by roll call because the electronic voting system is not working. It was struck by lightning. I’ve always wondered about that voting machine. It’s such an unimportant item that it was probably never reported in the newspaper (I would have put it in my blog) but I always have wanted to know how much it cost and the history behind it because it might be a charm that it was hit by lightning. The darn thing hardly ever worked.
According to a few people in the board meeting room who would know, you get what you pay for. This thing was cheap, in terms of government spending.
