61. While working together toward the same goal of verifiable elections
Our difference appears to be that your view is to convince people to have all hand count first, and then figure out how to accually do it.

My view is to figure out the logistics of accomplishing accurate hand counts and then present it for support and implementation.

I support the idea of at least moving to all paper ballots and rigorous large audits now.

I remain concerned about the many other causes of voting problems: disenfranchisement in many ways... caging, purging, intimidation, fraudulent mailings and phone calls, ballot design, etc., etc. I become concerned that the fight for handcount tends to overshadow and bury these very important issues.
