If you could cast your vote securely using a voting app for a presidential election on your phone would you use it?

I highly doubt anything on the digital Spectrum is secure in any notion.

"Securely"

That word should never be used when it comes to government.

Hell naw. Paper ballots for the win.

Yes.

But that’s a pretty big “if.”

No way to verify the user of the phone. They might not be eligible to vote.

And miss out on the great camaraderie of real life voter lines?

Not sure if you’re serious about that; I kinda doubt it. But anyway...)

My state has mail-in ballots. I thought I would miss standing in line with people who lived in my neighborhood, casting our votes together. (I never had to wait long in a line.) To retain just a hint of that feeling, I usually hand carry my ballot to the county courthouse, or at least to one of the designated drop-off spots, both of which are tended by poll volunteers, rather than mail it back. I’m almost over that... I do like to get the “I Voted” sticker, though.
