34. I think there is more to it
It's not that the BoE united to defend lever machines. It's that the BoE deadlocked over DREs. I don't see how that would vindicate Levers Forever! as a strategy. NYVV made a judgment call, and you don't have to agree with it, but I can't say it is obviously wrong.

Now if by stonewalling on levers for now, we could keep the vendors out, that would be cool. I don't think anyone has quite worked that out.

If the ballots are secure, even a flat 3% audit hand-counting hand-marked ballots will more than suffice to confirm the outcomes of the vast majority of New York's federal elections, and a bunch of others as well. Doesn't mean we should settle for that, but it would go a long way in the right direction.
