RZ10 - The Call Me Maybe Not Act

Whereas hey I just met you, and this law is crazy, and

Whereas the law requires the chancery to provide phone details in order to vote on the election, and

Whereas this law has not been put into practice in the last election, and

Whereas in preceding elections a phone number was only provided for North America, and

Whereas voting by phone currently requires a voter to know their PSC, and

Whereas knowing your PSC implies that you have access to an email address which is known by the chancery, and

Whereas this means you are able to vote by email, and

Whereas removing the vote by phone option therefore does not remove an option for voters who would otherwise not be able to vote, and

Whereas no complaints were received about the lacking vote by phone option, and

Whereas the SoS cannot be forced to sacrifice his own privacy by posting a personal phone number on the internet, and

Whereas neither the current budget nor any other budget in recent years provided funds for the chancery to buy a separate phone for the elections, and

Whereas if we really want the vote by phone option the government should provide the funds, and

Whereas Talossa has much better things to spend its money on, and

Whereas I cannot find the option of voting through the database anywhere in the law, now

Therefore Lex.B.3. which currently reads:

"Any citizen of Talossa may download, make copies of, and distribute said ballot. Any citizen of Talossa may vote on the ballot and send it in, by mail, to the Office of the Secretary of State. In addition, the Office of the Secretary of State shall make available telephone and e-mail contact information so voters can cast their votes through those media. Votes posted on Wittenberg shall also be counted."

shall be amended to read:

"Any citizen of Talossa may download, make copies of, and distribute said ballot. Any citizen of Talossa may vote on the ballot and send it in, by mail, to the Office of the Secretary of State. In addition, the Office of the Secretary of State shall make available telephone and e-mail contact information so voters can cast their votes through those media ['those media' struck through] that medium. The Office of the Secretary of State may additionally opt to provide other secure means to vote such as an electronic form on a website or a phone number. Votes posted on Wittenberg shall also be counted."
