73. I have a couple questions. to lala or brad or whoever would know...
1. At this moment where exactly should the the paper ballots and the scanners/cards be? are they both kept together or separately? Who has custody, right now?

2. If a recount does happen - what is the procedure? What percentage of the paper is counted and how is this determined? shuffled like a deck of cards?

3. Will there be an effort to compare the totals on the digital data to make a match to the paper?

I am very happy that there is a possibility of a recount but I am also a bit skeptical as to whether even this procedure is above manipulation. If the recount supports the numbers on Tuesday it will be ever more so difficult to go another round of this in another election.

thanks for all your hard work, all of you that have invested so much time and heart in this important matter.
