My experience may be symptomatic of other, non-technological issues the campaign had with the other constituencies involved in the process. I got everything delivered as promised and it looked as though it was all set to work on my iPhone. So, no tech snafus.
But here in PA there was apparently duplicative effort going on that obviated the need for me to be there at all.
I was assigned to, and all set to work at our local polling place, but when I went to the (ironically named) Victory Center to get my poll-watching certificate, I was told we weren't doing ORCA in PA. A frazzled volunteer coordinator tried to explain the disconnect between high-level (i.e., Boston) decisions and 'on the ground' decisions, but I didn't pursue it. I just worked the phones instead.
My impression was that it probably was technology and a process worth pursuing, but (as noted above) you don't ship PDF files to thousands of people across multiple platforms 48 hours before the election and hope it works.
Unlike the other side, we all have days jobs and needed the platform to work with a minimum of assistance.
Tommy De Seno: At the risk of heresy, may I raise the issue of "so what?" Assume it was discovered Christ was married. I see no effect on scripture. I could be wrong, but I recall no exhortations from Christ on remaining unwed, even for himself.
There may be some call for a sea change within the Church on how clergy should follow Christ, but that has no effect on anyone's belief system or the Word.
Christ was fully man. What great difference would there be were a wife discovered? · 2 minutes ago
Uhh, well for starters, I might wonder about the veracity of an historian like St. Luke if he did, in fact, leave out of his books the little tidbit of Jesus actually being married. A writer who includes details such as Jesus eating, not just any old fish, but broiled fish (Luke 24) is unlikely to have skimmed over a corporeal 'bride of Christ.'
