Lever Machines ROCK! (Get over it!)

NY Still Lagging In Voting Machine Upgrades

By: Michael Scotto

The city's board of elections held a hearing in Lower Manhattan Wednesday
night to address the federal government's mandate of upgrading voting
machines before the next election cycle. NY1's Michael Scotto filed the
following report.

The conversation has been going on for years. At the city Board of
Elections, a hearing was held on the two computer voting machines the city
hopes to choose between in the coming months.


Many people at the hearing wish the state would just keep the old
machines, saying new ones open up the door to voter fraud.

"Once you allow software, which we know is undetectably mutable, to count
the votes, then we have no idea how our votes are counted. But we can see
on the lever machine," said Andrea Novick, Election Transparency Coalition.

"I think it's a lot easier to keep the lever machines," said Howard
Stanislevic, eVoter Education Project.

At this point, it looks like voters will be pulling those levers for yet
another round of elections unless Albany can make up its mind.
