Poll question: Which Past Election Debacle Most Resembles New York's 2009 E-Vote-Counting 'PILOT?'

Many of the worst elements of past elections seem to be emerging in NY this year. Which of these blasts from the past do you think most resembles the Empire State's failing experiment with electronic vote-counting?

In contrast to the NY CD-20 special election held on lever machines this year, the CD-23 scanner madness is really pissing a lot of people off, even though CD-23 was not nearly as close as CD-20.

A voting system only works when the losers and their supporters are convinced they lost fair and square. This just isn't possible with computers, or the kind of slipshod procedures being developed in NY -- and apparently violated too -- to handle paper ballots.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.
