NLC Voting Reform

The voting process at the NLC is terrible (at least in the regional sessions). Voting in the "real world" does not consist of waiting for everyone else to show up. Voting in the real world is electronic, provided by kiosks. A majority always shows up on Election Day because it is widely known about and does not have a two-hour session of waiting for everyone to show up and all votes to be counted. This issue at the NLC could be solved by implementing a voting kiosk at the opening session. There could be 15 kiosks set up at the entrance to the opening session where delegates would cast their votes. Delegates could enter their badge ID into the kiosk to verify their status of a voting delegate (as this would be linked to your badge number during registration), and then a ballot would appear on the screen with the candidates for your region. This would guarantee a quorum because everyone attends the opening session. This would end the terrorizing two hours of waiting for lazy delegates who can't show up to the voting session to appear and be counted.
