The progressive comic about voting hand counts.

Give 'Em A Hand!

This cartoon is mostly in response to a story from out of my grand and glorious Sudetenland, uh, I mean, Texas in whose Gillespie country the local Republicans thought they'd had enough of all the <sarcasm> widespread voter fraud </sarcasm> and decided they'd fix the problem by hand-counting the votes resulting from their recent March 5th primary.

As you might expect, being they're Trumpy conservatives, they screwed the whole thing up.

This disappointed me because, being the low-grade computer nerd that I am, I have an honest distrust of electronic voting machines because I know they're only as trustworthy as the programmers who wrote the code. And there has already been testimony before Congress from such programmers who were instructed to alter such code to sway such elections. So I had modest hopes the result would prove that the old processes still work but all this accomplished was varnish it with a new sheen of redolent spew.

The fine folks of Gillespie County have sadly proven that the vote count is only as good as your ability to accurately and reliably add n+1.

Or the comic is about how strange a hand-count is to a species without hands.
