2. "...they're great-- easy to use and error/fraud free."
We agree!

OK, there can be errors in programming a given machine but that wouldn't be a system wide problem like it can be with a programming error on an e-voting machine.

It's not at all clear the costs of maintaining is high. Nor am I sure the parts can't be fashioned if they're not available.

I'll bet they're expensive to ship around. But they require no heat for storage, unlike e-voting equipment.

And just WHO is trying to get rid of the levers other than Bo and e-voting vendors? Don't tell me the BoE.

Why not use the ballot markers for those needing an accessible machine, hand count those ballots, and let all else use the levers? Oh wait! That's what NY is already doing!

So why does Bo advocate e-vote counting????
