I have an idea about how we can increase the Voter Turnout in Florida…

There has been a certain amount of talk having to do with increasing the amount and type of gambling that the state of Florida allows.   What I envision is this, and I have two ideas about this,  the voter goes to the polls, as usual, signs in, as usual, and then the voter pays a fee to get involved in the Voter Lotto.

A box is checked on the voters sheet, and when they put it into the machine it prints out a card of their picks, much like is done with the regular lottery.  The funds that go to the state could be divided up, pretty much, as they are with the regular funds.  I mentioned that I had two ideas for this.  The first one would be fairly straightforward, the other might give the voter a chance to pick not only his vote but his predictions for Place or Show, with, of course, the closer he gets to the actual results the more of the fund he gets.

The really good part of this is that, just like real gamling, it is a game of chance aferall who would have seriously predicted Rick Scott to win..  Place, or show, maybe but, WIN?  No way.  So that just goes to show that this is not a game of skill but chance.

Ex SSgt in Air Force Security Police... I had 10 years of active duty and inactive reserve. I have a total of 20 years, includes Air Force SP, security experience. I also worked 8 years and 4 months in the Garden Center of the Sarasota Cattleman Walmart. I also took the CCNA class at Sarasota Vo-Tech, when it was still called that. I am now, since 2010 a caregiver for my Mother. While I am now a registered Republican I am more likely to vote for whichever person I believe will do a better job.. In the last presidential elections I voted Libertarian, as I the two main choices seemed to be between lying crook, or an uncouth babler who could not be trusted.
