19. like clinging to their guns and religion?

I guess because there is no software involved.
Yes there can be problems with levers, but the risk is localized and limited to
one set of 999 votes.

With any sort of computerized voting, you have the ballot definition files, the software,
the operating system, the source code, the central tabulator, etc to deal with.

Until these systems, even optical scan - are improved and until the willingness to do
valid audits arrives, and recounts, then NY'ers are better off with what they have.

They have a very low undervote for President, something that many states do not.
