1. Good luck with that.
Why have honesty in elections when you can have speed! Polls can close in time for the final count to make the 10 O'clock news.

4. And then your government accountability board doesnt publish the actual
breakdown til a week or 2 later...and the county/muni sites don't have the info posted either. This is what's happening now in Wisconsin

2. ... and let high school Honor Society members count the ballots AND announce the results.
For the price of one unverifiable voting machine, we could buy enough pizzas and cold drinks in my county to have those students count (and recount and recount, if necessary) every single ballot.

It's not going to happen in Tennessee. The flying monkeys program our voting machines and no amount of bananas will get them to stop (unless, of course, we freeze those bananas and shoot them out of a cannon.)
