47. Forgot to say that Scotland is moving towards optical scanning

The reason, ironically being election reform. Single Transferable Vote is being brought in for local elections (a good thing, IMO) but that will make the votes much harder to count by hand.

Also worth bearing in mind that our biggest threat of election fraud comes from postal ballots, and attempted fraud using postal ballots was uncovered at our last general election.

HCPB is not a panacea for election fraud.
