NM DRE Machines Undervotes Report by uscountvotes
If this was not posted yet. If it's duplicate, sorry.

We find a strong association between election day undervotes and pushbutton DRE voting machines. The average undervote in precincts where pushbutton DRE voting machines were used was 3.5%, compared to less than 1% in precincts that used scanned paper ballots.

Precincts that used DRE voting machines were significantly more likely to record undervotes than precincts that used Optical scan machines, and of the two types of DRE machines, Push button machines were more likely to record undervotes than Touch screen machines.

1. You can believe Bush won NM
only if you believe thousands of people left their nice warm houses to go stand in line at a polling place to vote for judges and didn't bother voting in the national election.

3. Yes, but good to start the thread anew.
So many threads, they easily get buried with lots of life left in them.

And be sure to see the thread on the Snohomish county Stat Study. It reports the stat diffference between early votes on paper and DRE votes in same locations. Big differences = not chance:
