125. If ONLY the problem were a matter of "broken" machines...
But, speaking as someone who has a fair amount of programming experience, I know how easy it is to slip a bit of code into the software that runs these machines. This isn't a matter of a malfunctioning machine; the machine is functioning exactly as it was built to function (I.e., according to the instructions coded in the software).

Also, I grew up in a small town that used paper ballots until fairly recently. In fact, my mother was often one of the counters. There were always at least four counters, two from each party, as well as an offi ial observer. It would have been VERY difficult to pull off a lie.
