(on Absentee Voting by Mail) I Say...

Force anyone who wants to vote (other than at the appointed time and place) to get a free Notary-Authenticated Digital Certificate -and- adopt an open platform for voting with said certificates from anywhere. People need to take control of their identities again. I grew up believing that I was never to give out my Social Security Number to anyone for any reason. What happened to that? Some people print it on their checks for gods' sake.

I say: re-instill that sense of individual responsibility in our citizens -- and update our election system at the same time.
