These measures represent a step toward true democracy and a secure balloting system.
Open Primaries. Transitioning to open primaries in every state, away from our broken and egregiously expensive caucus system, and getting rid of the influence of superdelegates
Same-day Registration. Allowing same-day registration so every person gets to vote, regardless of how they choose to affiliate that election cycle
A paper ballot. Instituting a paper ballot system (or voter-verified paper backup) to keep our elections secure and free of foreign influence
Ranked-choice Voting. Introducing ranked choice voting at the national level, making sure no vote is ever wasted.
Automatic Voter Registration. Ensuring automatic voter registration for every person who turns 18 because there should be very few barriers to participating in democracy.
Make Election Day a Federal Holiday. We should reduce all barriers to performing one of our greatest civic duties.
Who else among the 2020 candidates is calling for such common sense changes? Who else is calling for an end to aggressive US foreign policy and regime-change wars? Who else has experienced first-hand the horrors of combat? Who else has sacrificed the fast-track to the top of the power pyramid in order to serve the common good?

Very sensible ideas of Tulsi. And therefore, unlikely to be implemented anytime soon.
I find it ultra ironic that in this day and age of computer automation, where in theory an election could be held with people voting through machines (or even from home via the internet), and the results visible instantly in real time, the machines themselves (the internet) are so vulnerable to hacking that we have to resort to paper ballots.
Its time for Kalikalos to recruit our FIRs for 2020 in case you might think to be back in Greece in the summer.
Yes, I think voting systems are intentionally engineered so that the counting can be controlled by the “powers that be.” I do intend to be back in Greece this year.
