      And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
      You will find that it has discrete steps.

        it probably makes a big difference in voting procedures that in the u.s. people are not officially registered at the place they live like in most other countries.

          The three most important issues on UK TV (not necessarily in order of merit) Brexit, Covid 19 and the US of election. First two are getting boring, BUT not as boring as the last one. We've had three soddin days of the last one on our TVs. Only point of interest will be if whoever wins can pronounce NEW CLEAR properly.

          Regards Ian

            Well, we are still waiting for you guys to pronounce Aluminum correctly.

              We have postal votes in the UK, too. It's a shame there are no statistics as to the political persuasion of CO 19 deaths in the USA.
              The IUPAC standardised the spelling "aluminium" in 1990.
              I can't believe George has not stopped this thread yet.

                  21, think about it!

                        All the states have different rules. Ours do not allow tallying votes until the election day, regardless of them coming in early.

                        We have actual paper ballots, which I think is very good*. BUT, they are read by a machine as soon as you finish. Those are available right away, but there are always ones that are not clear enough to be read by the machine, and then judgement calls occur. Remember "hanging chad"? And that was a card that either had, or did not have , a portion removed to let light shine through..... which seems pretty "yes or no", but apparently was not. (We used them long ago, and they were an issue)

                        Ours you fill in a square with a pen, so it has to read as a dark spot, which depends on how well it was done with the pen. Some folks just mark with an "X" or otherwise fail to make it dark enough for the reader to get a clean result, and then those have to be hand checked.

                        * We used to have electronic machines, which I would not use. They were supposed to make a paper record of the votes for checking in case of problems, but they did it on thermal paper! I have an oven that will fix that so you cannot prove a thing............. Plus it was proven that the machines were hackable.

                            It would seem that half the population has no idea what a problem the guy was.

                              Well. The party's over. Now for the REALLY crazy s**t to start.

                                I propose any one who starts these bull**** threads Friday afternoon when George is gone for the weekend should be banned for a few months.
