13. Are you going to answer my question or not?
Edited on Thu Jan-06-11 10:49 PM by Bill Bored
It's amazing that when asked for a plan to verify leverless elections, all you guys can do is crawl out of the woodwork and revert to your lever-bashing position as if that's a cogent response to the question.

I've been doing this far too long to be bullshitted like that. You've got nothin'. Admit it. You don't have a clue how to verify computer-counted election results, do you?

You only know what a few advocates have told you about how it's better to have computers count paper ballots than not count paper ballots.

You've got nothin'! So either come up with the goods or think of a better comeback than "Mechanical DREs." That's a specious analogy if I ever heard one. It shows a complete lack of understanding about the risks inherent in allowing software to handle critical functions such our democratic process.

If you can't explain to me how you're going to verify election results with your computerized voting system, sorry but I'll take a lever voting system that can't switch votes during elections by design.

The reason there are crickets here is because you and some others can't answer the question. So cut the crap and have a nice day.
