Everybody still seems concerned with voting, even now that the Kuhnel recount is finished, Larry Hourany being one. He tries to remind us how important it was that Ron Kuhnel asked for a recount to verify the accuracy of the election.
It was interesting to read that the Voter Confidence Committee asked all the candidates not concede when "questions remain". Well, I still have one:
How would those asking for Kuhnel's recount feel if the recount showed he won by two votes- a much smaller margin than Leonard won by? Do we hold yet another recount?
Sacramento Bee columinst, Dan Walters, also seems concerned about voting today. He tells us how some people work to limit people's choices in elections.
Hey, I want clean elections just as much as most do, but forgive me for not getting too excited. The idea that politicians are a bunch of bums and everything would be better if we just replaced them with a different set of bums isn't something that really gets me all worked up.
Limiting people's choices? Now that might get me going. But the biggest problem, no matter what the choices are, is that government, whether it be a politician, bureaucrat or 51% majority vote, has way too much control over every aspect of our lives.
