This stuff is out of control. We better get some rules around this, or in about 10 years, people are not going to know what hit them.

Just all part of living in a technologically advanced society...

Those people with nothing to hide will not be significantly affected...

Those people who are prone to criminal and illegal activities will be hit hard....

It is technology that will keep our society a bit safer and more secure from those who would do us harm...

Now those with something to hide can speak!!!!!

I have been exploring many of the new advances in facial recognition software and believe that there are a number of ways to use this technology to reduce the costs of keeping our voter registration lists up-to-date. I am looking forward to costs falling even further so this can be more affordably incorporated into the protection of the integrity of our voting system. Mark Ritchie, Secretary of State

"Now those with something to hide can speak!!!!!"...Here I am, I have nothing to hide but may I attempt to speak for those...Such as the woman who left her husband/significant other, and now he has much better access to track her down, between this and tracking license plates...Or the man/woman who has a nasty liking of the younger crowd, now we can see where they are and learn their routine...Or what about that mentally, physicall or sexually abusive parent who lost rights to their child but would have no problem kidnapping that child, again now the routine can be discovered and the child can be easy access....Or what about those of us who just plain like our privacy? There are more and more reasons to knock this down...

Mr Ritchie, I apologize but I do not agree with this. I do not want my face recognized when voting for one, I do not want my ID recorded. I am fine if you note that I voted so no one else can claim they are myself, but if I do or do not vote and who/what I do or do not vote for is my business. This is just all another step closer to no privacy.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Mr. Ritchie, do you not see any downside to all of these invasions of privacy? Please note to me how you feel about the lack of protection this will cause for those who need to stay un noticed? What about the scenarios I mentioned before. I am really interested in how you feel about the privacy issues? I really do hope for a reply:)

totaltruth, I think you would be more comfortable living in a totalitarian society. We value our freedoms here in America and we won't give them away for the myth of living more securely. It has nothing to do with hiding anything. Perhaps you wouldn't mind if the police knocked on your door any time they wanted, without cause or warrant, just to "look around" a bit?
