1. I've been voting on opti-scan machines like this for 20 years
First in Minnesota, then in Massachusetts, now in Illinois. They are fine. I used to live in NYC, and I can't believe they are using these same old lever machines.

There is no reason to mistrust the opti-scans any more than the lever machines (which can be rigged). In fact, I think they're better because a paper ballot exists in the case of recounts with the opti-scans. I think Nassau County will be fine, and it's about time to enter the twentieth century (not to mention the twenty-first)
