The privacy curtain and absentee voting

The reason for the  curtain when voting is for privacy. Nobody has the right to know whom you are voting for.

In the late 50's people were accused of being of communists and many were falsely accused. Sometimes keeping quiet doesn't work and paranoid minds reek havoc.

Nowadays people flaunt all over social media whom they're voting for and more so who they hate.

Social media has created enemies amongst families and friends.

The privacy curtain was invented for a reason, our forefathers had great insight in knowing privacy is an essential point in voting. They say, "don't wash your dirty underwear in public." 'They' sure are smart.

My dad was right! He always said, "son, two things you should never talk in public are politics and religion." Did I listen? No!.

The other thing I do not understand is people not registered come voting time? Each and every year I am automatically registered as an absentee voter. Once you register in Hawai'i by mail as an absentee voter you are registered as absentee forever until you move or give notice. This seems so simple and inexpensive if the whole country would just vote absentee. Well?

No need for public buildings, privacy curtains or long lines, seems like a win win to vote absentee! 

Nobody will ever know whom
I'm voting for. I like to keep it secret and avoid
confrontations, as I wear my Trump hat!  ;-)

Hana Hou, (Encore)

I don't understand all the news clips with long lines come voting day, and all the problems finding volunteers and help-- it's simple, vote by mail. Let Washington state lead! So cool yet simple.

I think other states are starting to do it too, Oregon, maybe?

Cool! wink emoticon Maybe Hawaii will take heed!

Just googled it, Oregon, Washington and Colorado. Hmm, aren't those also the states that have legalized marijuana?

Aloha Kimo:
I agree with you 100% that everyone should vote absentee---simple, efficient and far easier than driving to a location and waiting in long lines.
AND the privacy factor will never be a problem--using the curtain!!
in fact the privacy factor is getting to be more and more of a problem with computer hacking at all levels running rampant, drones and whatever technology is coming forward in this new IT world.

Keep up the great work even with your Trump hat on!!

I agree. We had no lines, but we went mid-morning..I don't know if that mattered....
