58. High DRE failure rates could have a VERY partisan effect. EAC did nothing to improve that standard.

If voters can't vote because the machines are down and there is no backup method, that could be made to be partisan by deploying unreliable machines in (Dem) party strongholds, such as urban areas (as in FL, PA, elsewhere?).

A lawsuit had to be filed against PA in federal court just to get backup paper ballots in case of DRE failures. That should not have been necessary, esp. since PA is supposed to be a blue state. They had a Dem Governor and SoS.

Dems = own worst enemies!

FL had to have a CD-13 debacle before they dumped their DREs. PA still has theirs.

On edit, and back to the OP:
And now the EAC is going after ballot scanners that failed tests in...Ohio...of all places! We'll see how far they actually do go.
