Here's an idea to implement that - Do it at County level, then send those results to whoever needs them. And to help cover the mail-in aspects of voting, since it's by finger print, then whatever area you are in, you can vote there and just have it identified somehow that it's an absentee vote.
Here's an interesting concept though (at least I think so). What if we used fingerprint/handprint or even voice activated sensors on law enforcement officers' weapons? That may be a stupid idea based on temporal concerns in life-or-death situations. On the other hand it is an added layer of security.
That's not a stupid idea at all. Hand held weapons have grips to hold the weapon. The finger print scanner can be installed right there.
