59. You can make those arguments but they are as likely to be untrue.
For one, there are plenty of "lever states" that went with Opscan. No doubt there was a big push toward DREs. And no doubt, as I've pointed out, Lipari, but also a dedicated group of people who no longer associate with him, played deciding roles in preventing that.

But there is a difference between pointing out the dangers of DREs, and advocating for the replacement of levers with computers.

From every point of view, the lever is deemed superior by a majority of those who study the issue closely. While Lipari is free to see it otherwise, he shouldn't make misleading remarks. And he does. And he defends them.

HCPB advocates treatment of you might not compare (unless yours was also a lever state). NY HAS levers in place. Lipari advocates their replacement with computerized vote counting while HAVA does not require it.

While you might not want to take Bo at his word without verification, he is a decent photographer IMHO.
