38. 'most in the ER community would be OK with '
let's not go there

there is not much we can get this "community" to agree on. it is sad.

I think a law banning DREs and mandating audits would be a major step forward. If people fight against such a bill, simply because it's not handcounting 100% of the ballots, they are shooting themselves in teh foot.

If they do draft a bill, and let's hope they do... Banning DREs is easy... audits is a tough one. There are so many different ways to do an audit, I have tried to learn a bit about the different methods. I am intrigued by Simon's method of sampling X% of every polling place instead of sampling all of the ballots at X% of the polling places, and doing on election night. But I would like to see some peer review of this method before I totally sign on. But they're not going to care what I think anyway.. I think New Jersey and Connecticut have OK audit laws
