247. Well where I read about it was in the DNC VRI report.
He didn't go into lengthy detail about the election 2000 but he compared touch-screen and other voting systems to opti-scan, and this seemed to be the general conclusion in the machine index.

Opti-scan machines were far better off because of their ability to filter out overvotes is what jumped out at me. It was un-neccesary I feel in this research report, and he would have been better off to simply have a cliffnotes section and link to his "earlier" report where this whole thing gets discussed.

To me it detracted from the overall paper. That just didn't seem to correlate with the problem.
