9. On the other hand, they sued to improve the undervote rate on NYC levers a few years ago and...
...they won that one! It was a matter of reinstalling a simple mechanical interlock that prevents the curtain from being opened unless at least one vote is cast (or at least one blank write-in is cast by those who want to cast a blank ballot intentionally).

This resulted in NY State having one of the lowest undervote rates in the 2004 Presidential election. But we don't hear the Brennan Center or anyone else who's pushing e-vote counting mentioning that now.
