When I went to my precinct in Berkeley to vote today, I saw some poor poll worker down on his knees trying to figure out how to get the electronic ballot box to work again after a ballot had gotten stuck in it.

Thank goodness I had my absentee ballot with me and just gave it to the poll worker. And thank goodness the poll worker had functioning knees and could stay down there for the half an hour it took to "unstuff" the ballot box. Had it been me -- with my bad knees -- the whole electronic voting process in south Berkeley woulda been screwed!
