196. "You mention it. Not me."
Well, yes. You haven't shed much light on what makes a voting system adequately verifiable in your view, so I am pretty much guessing at your meaning, and therefore at your argument.

What sort of audit trail do you want? As I understand it, DREs store electronic images of the ballots cast, and that is construed as an audit trail. Probably neither of us regards it as adequate. But it's there.

Yes, I was responding to a post that asserted mathematical proof of fraud in Ohio -- which apparently you and I both interpreted as meaning proof that the election was stolen. Since as far as I know Diebold DREs weren't used anywhere in Ohio, I still don't see how your comments have been on point. But that's OK, it's certainly all part of the election reform picture.

If you don't know who Doug Jones, Rebecca Mercuri, and David Dill are, your knowledge of e-voting experts is pretty sketchy. Maybe that's a side issue as well. I'll just say again: there are plenty of DRE critics who don't regard their design as evidence of fraudulent intent. I don't really care whether I can convince you of that, although I would not encourage you to bet against me; I've simply tried to answer your questions.
