31. What can I say?
I have described the best system we can get, now it is up to activists in NY and NYC to go the their election officials and press to get such systems. The solution we have managed in NC is not perfect, and it requires continued vigilance to avoid back-sliding or shortcuts (Thankfully we have Joyce McCloy on the job here).

But at least we have a system that is orders of magnitude more secure than what you just described.

The system you describe is insecure, and thus highly vulnerable to tampering/error. The only way this will change is by activism at the state and local level. These things don't change themselves, and folks can either complain about it, get involved and change it, of let someone else change it.
