2. How do you know the bugs have been worked out and that the scanners haven't been hacked?
Let's say there's some vote switching, padding, deletion, or whatever. How would you know?

Suppose party allocations are incorrect and instead 10% of the vote, the Cons or the Working Families party only get 3% or 5%. How would you know? The same candidates could be elected, but those parties could be screwed out of their share of the vote, reducing their influence.

Suppose someone has hacked the scanner to pass the test deck and then switch votes during the election. How would you know?

I'm just askin'.

Thanks for your post.
