2. Holt is supporter of electronic and privatization, generally, so always an imperfect champion.
Edited on Sat Jul-18-09 04:31 PM by MarjorieG
Since deploying unsafe and junk technology, catch-up remedies for e-voting, like Holt's bills, always do too little to address bigger and current to future issues.

For NY, it bans levers, something mechanical we are still trying to keep, because any electronic machines, even just secret vote counting scanners, are more costly, requiring more procedure than election boards want to do.

Now that the fantasy of a perfect machine and a safe, privatized election has worn off, we're stuck with state law expressing that 2005 fantasy, and recurring Holt Bills.
