Unless you count as "important" the issue whether
you end up having a Republican or a Democrat elected.
They definitely have different agendas on that. :)

In most democracies of the world, even in very
highly industrialized countries, votes are cast
on paper, without any machinery either for voting
or for counting the votes. Voting is not a problem
in my country (Sweden), and nobody is pushing hard
for voting machines, neither the voters, the government,
the people up for election nor any manufacturer of
hardware or software. Discussions of electronic
voting have been met with a general "meh" by most
people. "It's not broken, so don't fix it."

Why is it that the US is so desperately hell-bent on
keeping a voting system that obviously doesn't work
the way it should? I can't help but thinking that
pen and paper and hand counting really would be an
elegant solution to most of the voting problems
you are having in the US.
