yeah I don't think that you're going to force people to research candidates any better no matter what you do inside the voting booth either, just saying that the person "listed at the top" wouldn't win all the time if we were talking about electronic voting anyway.
only real way to make people do more research would be to find a way to get more people personally invested in the process. a lot of people are straight ticket voters, sure, and maybe they're "the problem", but I think the problem is more that the system has alienated a fairly large number of people into thinking the individual they are voting for doesn't matter as much as the party. at least on the national scale =|
