26. I'm surprised this "lever" discussion is still going nowhere after a week.
Why should I assume the levers are the problem when any number of procedures, just as important to Op Scan elections, may have been the cause. And the act of certifying such an anomalous result is perhaps an even larger problem! So what really happened?

I'm with John. I'd also be "curious about why a precinct appeared to have a 67% undervote rate". But it's not like we have an indication about what part of the election process is really at issue here, either.

So maybe it's inappropriate to sortof classify these as lever problems.

Remind me about the jammed machine story. Sounds awful. Do Op Scans ever jam? Are you really more likely to find out there's a problem with them? As opposed to lever machines that tend to provide evidence that they have either failed or were attacked. And did the lever machine jam cause the two year delay? How about a link?
