6. recount does not mean handcount

The statutes direct that the ballots be "recounted" by the same method that they were "counted" the first time around. So if they are op scan, they'd just be shoved through the machine again. The only reason some ballots were handcounted in the Supreme Court race was that the memory packs didn't have enough available memory to retain the original count and recount the ballots again.

Our efforts need to go toward changing the statutes, and that's not going to happen with the current administration - but we'll keep at it.
