32. "better then someone flipping a switch" doesn't mean it's good.
Edited on Tue Feb-17-09 10:39 AM by Wilms
And what prevents "someone flipping a switch" on the machine that does do the counting? An "insider attack" is likely the more likely vote stealing scenario. And that's before we discuss ballot security, coercion, and vote selling/buying.

Vote by mail has it's charm but doesn't find me near as enthusiastic as it's supporters with their cherry-picked arguments.
