Voters who can't read shouldn't vote 111700 - The Augusta Chronicle



Regarding the Florida vote count fiasco: I have no problem with votes being recounted if a machine or machines malfunctioned. I do have a problem with the stalling of selecting a president.

If, however, voters who now complain they made a mistake and punched or checked the wrong name are what is holding up the process, then I do have a problem with it. They should have read the directions and if they didn't understand them, read them again.

If they still couldn't understand them, they could have asked for help. If they can't follow instructions, then maybe they shouldn't be voting.
