30. where can it go?
In the case of the local election that was overturned, there is actually testimony that the machine jammed. In the other case, there is only conjecture (as far as I know), but the information given to John indicates that the machine was duly recanvassed, so that rules out several possibilities.

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.

Umm, yeah, if by "you" you mean "me," I think I have a better shot with a paper audit trail that actually gets audited than with the current system that can't be audited -- although requiring the results from every ED would help a lot.

Wilms, I can't shake the impression that you aren't very interested in this topic, but you're going to post about it anyway. I'm going to have to find some people who actually want to know the answers, or maybe find some other questions to work on, because this is too depressing for me.
