4. One race vs. 50.
This is an Italian ballot- one item to count.



This is a Los Angeles ballot- ten pages, 52 items to count.



"each ballot paper is checked by all six of the polling station workers and any of the parties representatives". With 50 races, this will need to be done 50+ times per each ballot. Los Angeles County has nearly 4,000,000 voters. How many poll workers/counters will be needed for hand counts? How many poll workers are there presently?
