Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I know that, and it has facilitated all sorts of local discrimination, gerrymandering, and downright vote rigging by whoever is in power at the local level.  When the US decided it was time to take the civil rights issue seriously, it had to be done by Federal legislation against a lot of local opposition - e.g. the school busing issue.

If we are to stop whining about vote rigging and start doing something about it, we have to encourage major candidates to adopt a platform of electoral reform to be applied consistently across the US - and that can only be done at Federal level - especially if we also want to remove the Diebold monopoly control of parts of the process.
