NY: "Someone must have gotten a very nice contract out of this." - Chryssos

Here's one just like I posted a moment ago on this thread.

Again there is not any mention of the lawsuit to keep the levers or to correct the overvote notification.

But the author DID report an EARFUL.

The new voting machine was poorly received by the town board.

"I see Bush v. Gore all over this machine," said Peter Chryssos, deputy supervisor. "Just by virtue of the fact that you have to fill something out, it seems to me it has built-in obsolescence already. Someone must have gotten a very nice contract out of this."

Board member David Gabrielson agreed with Chryssos.

"It sounds like there are going to be very long lines and confusion," he said. "Not because it's a new system, but because what (Fumagalli) described is confusing."

With the new ballot style and different method of filling it out and casting it, many worry the change will daunt voters and keep them away.

"It's taking something that was really very easy, and making it very complicated," Fumagalli said. "The most important thing you can do is to vote. We're trying to be as positive as we can."
