10. Let's be fair. How could they have predicted there would NOT be hand recounts of paper ballots
Edited on Thu Dec-08-11 07:28 PM by Bill Bored
counted by computers; or that the computers would ""REALLY SUCK"; or that overvoting, which was a thing of the past (thanks to New York's lever voting system) would return with a vengeance disenfranchising tens of thousands of unsuspecting voters; or that the courts -- not the voters -- would be deciding who won our elections (without hand counting the paper ballots counted by the computers)?

I mean really, let's be fair. How could anyone have predicted all THAT as a result of a simple change like replacing lever voting machines with computers?

That would be like predicting there would be a return of vote switching (which was also a thing of the past thanks to the lever machines).

Do ya expect NYVV to have a crystal ball or something?

If not, then please cut 'em some slack!
