51. Not only are they not trustworthy...
but several of the companies' principals are foreign criminals and the software is "proprietary"! I've been reading BradBlog since he started in 2001(?) and you would think that things would get better, yet they've actually gotten much worse. I'm in NY State. We were the last ones to give in- unnecessarily according to HAVA- to the hijacked computerized crap. We had lever machines, some of which were 80 years old and still working perfectly with a little maintenance. Now we have plastic crap that isn't only unreliable and untrustworthy, but cost a fortune to "update" and "maintain". With the lever machines we had local results within the hour of the polls closing. This last election it took close to 3 hours to get digitized results. It would have taken far less time to hand count at the polling places.

I vote only out of habit now. I EXPECT my vote not to be counted as I intended.
