17. what is "really safe machine counting"?
Getting rid of the private vendors might be a decent step. But if we're going to have machine counting, then we need to audit the counts, no matter who makes the machines. And despite many assurances that we are on the verge of returning to 100% hand counts, I'm not aware of anywhere that has made that move. As far as I know, the trend line continues downward. (We would be well advised to audit those counts, too.)

Incidentally, this thread isn't about my reform agenda; that is certain people's attempt to disrupt and hijack it. Or so it seems to me.
