115. Of course
To some degree electronic records can be examined. Usually only after a court trial, etc. like what happened in Sarasota 2006. Where it was found 18,000 votes simply disappeared. And the republican won by 300 some odd votes. After that, Fla. got rid of the DRE's.

If the DRE's weren't some bad shit, do you think Fla. would have done that? And remember the Hursti hack in Fla.? So, yes, a limited exam can be done, and in the few instances that exams have taken place, the machines were found faulty. Problem is, in 2004, no machines were examined. All we had was exit-polls.... and the past returns which showed whenever there was a big turnout, democrats won.
