12. levers verses HCPB verses optical scan
Edited on Sun Jan-27-08 02:12 AM by WillYourVoteBCounted
I tried to do a study of the 3 hand counted paper ballot counties in North Carolina.
Using their Net annual expenditures divided by the number of registered voters, HCPB came out
to cost more than DREs or optical scan, so I didn't go further with the study.

Frankly, I didn't want to make HCPB look bad. Our OS were about $3.5 per reg voter, and DRE about $5.50 per registered voter per year.

I have been told that NY's net annual expenditures average out to about $9.00 per registered voter.

That is high compared to NC costs, although I am sure ours have increased since buying new equipment.

That is low compared to costs in Florida counties, with Miami Dade spending about $20.00 per registered voter and Broward spending about $10.
