Changing Elections: Your Ideas Wanted

If you could change anything about elections, what would it be? Imagine for a moment that you could wipe the slate clean and build an election process anyway you wanted. Would you, for instance, require identification at the polls? How about Election Day voter registration? What about voting on Saturday - or doing away with polling places and moving to all mail elections?

Perhaps voting technology is your interest. What about requiring all states to use "Open Source" vote tabulation software? Paper ballots? 

One way citizens can know that votes are counted correctly is through the post election "audit process." How would you change that? Would you require everything to be counted and verified by hand?
