PHOENIX - An Arizona political activist is placing his bets that a proposal to pay one lucky voter $1 million will drive people to the polls.
Dr. Mark Osterloh, a Tuscon ophthalmologist who has run unsuccessfully for governor and the legislature, filed paperwork Monday to put the idea before state voters on the 2006 ballot.
"Who do you know that doesn't want to be a millionaire? What's the worst thing that could happen? Everybody who's eligible to vote could be voting," he said.

See the Vote2Win Campaign info below on a proposal tha would let citizens register for a similar contest on the honor system once they register to vote and once they vote. It could also pormote audit trails for all eletronic voting and WOULD NOT REQIRE A NEW LAW or A REFERENDUM.
