Preemptive poll-watching question regarding number of voting machines per precinct
Advertisements [?]
I searched the California Elections code and could find nothing that stated a requirement for a certain number of voting machines per size of precinct ...

Should the following be a preemptive action item for pollwatchers in counties/states with voting machines?

If someone plans to be a pollwatcher, they should call the county registrar now, i.e. in advance of the election, to find out the number of machines to be deployed in their precinct and also the number of voters expected (based on past history and number of voters registered)...if the number of machines appears to be insufficient ahead of time, maybe pressure could be put on the registrar to issue extra paper ballots or machines.
