4. The EAC might only be doing this to look like they're doing something.
There's an effort to revert to the old system of having the NASS deal with it. Unacceptable.

But NIST says you can't rely on software to run the elections or audit them. Period. So it really doesn't matter. You have to count enough paper by hand to have sufficient confidence in outcomes. And NOBODY is doing that enough to have a sufficient degree of confidence in close elections.

I don't know when they'll reach a conclusion, but something tells me this issue effects ALL ES&S products.
