15. I ask again: what is wrong with a good (computerized) optical scanning of paper ballots?
It's a hell of a lot better than lousy lever machines, on which your New York votes are probably being stolen as we speak.

And there isn't a state in the nation that hand counts ballots. Except in the case of recounts for extremely close contests. Then the paper ballots from COMPUTERIZED optical scan systems are the best option.

Am I missing something, or are New Yorkers just luddites?
