Dystopic Journal: Perpetuating the Totalitarianism

As far as elections go, Arizona has become the new Florida. Florida had become the laughingstock when it came to running elections during the Bush v Gore fiasco in 2000/2001. Now Florida has cleaned up its act and is now a model of how elections should be run in the US.
