The tech angle is news, but it is misleading to call this a 'board of supervisors' election. It is an election to a Conservation District board, which (for arcane & historical reasons) does not have to abide by many types of state and federal election law. Seems worth mentioning somewhere in this article that Seattle has one of the highest turnout rates in the country for most election due to Washington's easily accessible vote-by-mail program, which suggests that ease of access is not what's holding back the KC BoS elections.
... bad idea. So many ways to intercept and mess with mobile data: I say stick to pen and paper.... ot may not be hip and green but it is easier to recount and that helps with all the alleged hacking and meddling interesting 🐨🐶🐻🐆🦊🐮🦅🐎🐿🦒🕊 And totally hackable!
