1. WTF are you talking about? New York...
has been trying to get rid of the lever machines for years because the maintenance costs are astronomical and parts are nonexistent. Now, we have to.

Other than that, they're great-- easy to use and error/fraud free.

So, what to replace them with? Because of the requirements for handicapped voting, DREs are slipping in as the easiest systems for compliance, but that means some, maybe all, counties will go all DRE to avoid having to buy two systems.

Optical scan machines would be best, but, yeah, there's a lot of bullshit going on,and there's that handicapped problem... And NY's counties have only about two weeks to make their decisions. It's still ultimately a county choice so far.
