Really don’t overthink election regulations
Thank you for your useful write-up in the June 24 Homer Information about our Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly’s attempt to “codify” its election protocols. Permit me state evidently that I believe in superior legislation and restrictions and productive enforcement of the identical. I also try out to comply with the “KISS” basic principle of maintaining it simple.
A administration trainer at the time advised versus overthinking problems. It appears that the new codifications are nearly anything but very simple and may possibly make the election officials’ jobs even more durable and most likely for much less pay out. Considering the fact that there is scant proof of voting troubles on the Kenai Peninsula, this would seem to be a basic circumstance of above wondering.
The skeptic in me miracles if the sponsors of this complex writing experienced support from afar, this kind of as the nationwide exertion to codify election procedures in numerous states. We don’t have to have to suppress the vote in Alaska or on the Kenai Peninsula. We have to have to get out and vote so anyone has possession in our authorities. The enemy is not them, it is us.
