11. we had some HCPB only activists in one county in my state and you know what they got?

Their county bought DRES, with the toilet paper trail.

In Buncombe County NC, the HCPB folks lobbying backfired - county officials chose instead to listen to the County Board of Elections, who seemed more "reasonable" but who wanted DREs.


We found a new group to come in at the last minute (March 2006) and start advocating for optical scan,
and in 3 months time, that group had persuaded the County Commissioners to approve of selling the new
DRES that had been purchased for the May 2006 primary.
The county untlimately went 100% optical scan/automark thanks to the new group's last minute efforts.

SO HCPB is fine, but have you've been playing cheerleader for years now.
If you want HCPB, you might want to try to have a little local success to prove that your strategy works.
