Confidence needed in secure election process

I hesitate to send this public letter for fear of reprisal, however I do not think it should even be considered a controversial partisan topic.

I think our election system has been corrupted by doing mail in, signature based verification ballots that are fed into a corporate owned proprietary software.

The right way to conduct an election is to use local people and lists and IDs and communities to conduct elections.

Signature verification can work for credit card companies but it is no way to do elections.

People will be happier when there is confidence in the system of democracy and the way it is set up now, there is inherently no confidence in the integrity of the vote and no amount of saying it is fair can convey a feeling that it is fair since the fundamentals of the system are intrinsically flawed.
