Apparent NY SD 7 Winner Says Other Elections Should Have Been Questioned

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

On this point, we could not agree more.

Some voting advocates too are to blame, since they insisted on replacing the lever voting system before laws needed to verify computerized election outcomes -- if indeed this is even possible -- were on the books. We are still waiting for such laws.

Martins' own county of Nassau has it right. Its pending bipartisan lawsuit challenges the constitutionality of computerized vote counting.

Columbia County also got it right when both election commissioners there agreed to do full hand counts of all contests before the 2010 elections.

Senator Patty Ritchie of the 37th District may also have it right. Her campaign filed suit, even when she was ahead in the count, claiming that Upon information and belief, the machines employed in this election are computer operated optical scan machines which are prone to hacking and other fraudulent attacks which can compromise the results of an election."
To say nothing of the inadvertent programming errors or calibration glitches that have the same potential.
