Hehehe that would surely cause issues for some people without fingers.... or who have to work afterwards.... or people with ink allergies. ...
I can see the thing with someone without fingers (though, if you don't have fingers, there should be an exception for that - I guess fingerless people might suddenly be at a higher risk for voter fraud, rather than your entire population at the moment), and maybe something for people with ink allergies (different types of ink?).
But working has nothing to do with it. Plenty of people at home vote on their way to work, and it doesn't stop them. Ink dries quickly.
plus it's not like you made up the "ink finger" thing anyway....other countries do that already (of course, if memory serves correct....they're not all countries that i'd like to model most functional portions of our election process after).
I never said that I made it up. Just that I think it's a system that works.
oh i wasn't suggesting you claimed to have made it up...that was more to address maninblack's misgivings about people going to work with inky fingers....if er'body had inky fingers it wouldn't be a thing. in fact, you'd probably get more shit for not having an inky finger because we'd all know you're a freeloader that doesn't vote (or a felon)
