7. To be fair, the NY machines use a "ballot sleeve" to help keep the vote secret.
Still, these machines are being forced on EVERYONE because some advocates claim the accessibility features are important to a segment of the population. So where are they? And why does everyone have to use the new machines.

In NY, the discussion has morphed into one of security. Some members of New Yorkers for Verified Voting insist it's less secure to vote on a lever machine, more secure to vote on an optical scan.

Some disagree with their assessment and arguments. Especially their argument claiming HAVA requires the retirement of lever machines. It doesn't. And NYVV knows it. But their leader makes misleading statements about it.
