As Anna Louise Grimm put in her letter, I too am sad that we have lost our "secret ballot."

As an ex-Oregonian, I know that people in Oregon told me, "Oh yes, I vote ... my husband (wife) filled it in and all I had to do was sign it." There were also times when kids filled them out for their folks. I even know of people who had moved to California who were still voting in Oregon because they received the mailed ballot. And, how do you vote privately and securely when not in a controlled atmosphere?

Well, so long secret ballot - I for one shall miss you.
