So I’m back from the election. Voters were servied, all votes are counted and the results are brought to the central voting office. After all it went ok. Only ok for me because with all these single individuals that decide whether a vote is valid or invalid, whether they sorted all ballots to the correct party, whether all single votes have been taken into account and that try to get through the whole paperwork, I can olny say: it’s a mess and what is most frightening it’s a very individual and personal mess. Voting machines have been forbidden by court because they are open to hacker manipulation but after this day I’m really not sure what is the lesser evil… hmpf.
