Monroe. Washington. Entered as Second-Class Matter at the Post Office at Monroe, Washington, under the Act of March 3, 1879. WARD BOWDEN ........................................................................ Publisher HOWARD VOLAND .............................................. Editor For The Voers' Convenience . . , i To borrow an old phrase, there is nothing stronger than an idea whose time has come. Paper ballots, in the stead of confounded ma- chines, is the idea whose time has come by virtue of public demand in Monroe. Specifically, voters here found these conditions to deal with Tuesday--and none were to their liking: --Long queues held voters from machines, one elector reporting a wait of fifty minutes; --One person occupying a booth for 32 minutes because of difficulty in handling the mechanism, reported by yet another individual; --Some voters reported inability to ballot for the precinct commit- teeman of their choosing; ---Several chagrined to learn they had failed to vote on the initiative measures, one of these believing the six measures to be con- tained on paper ballots, the others not even noting the proposals; ----One machine inoperable at the opening of the polls and a second machine jamming after use by one voter, thus leaving but one machine available for use during the early voting period; --Electors lamenting the want of private booths for casting paper ballots on the hospital proposal; --Others pointing out that there vas no physical barrier to stop persons from going through the voting line twice (registration for voting was in one queue while a separate, and longer queue, formed to ballot). In all of these instances complainants were intelligent, prepared voters, several of whom hold public and quasi-public positions here in this community. In virtually all instances the use of paper ballots would have forestalled the criticisms voiced. Any rural Monroe precinct voter can, and readily does, attest to the speed and convenience of making their decisions via paper bal- lot. The argument that machine ballot expedites counting since the inovation of the "counting team" program, simply doesn't hold water. Counting teams report to rural precincts at 4 p.m. and are well under- way in tabulations by the time polls close at 8 p.m. Even if we concede the machine facilitates an early count down, the inconvenience of waiting for an opportunity to ballot, the injustices perpetr, ated by the cantankerous machines in no way offsets the afore- mentioned. Paper ballots--the general public clearly indicates--are again wanted here in Monroe, and this now is the time to move in that direction before voters are again subject to queueing and the discon- certment of the loss of their rightful say-so. After all--voting should be conducted in a manner convenient' to the VOTER, rather than the ballot counters and the election board.
