12. NY banned paperless DREs in 2005 and would have done it sooner
Edited on Tue Jan-06-09 03:57 AM by Bill Bored
if we didn't take the time to also allow op scans.

The battle is now between computerized and non-computerized vote counting.

Those who are pushing op scan obviously favor computers. Those who want to keep levers, are trying to do without computers, like the hand count folks.

I don't know WHAT you're trying to do with respect to New York, computers, or hand counts, but I haven't seen any paperless touch screen advocates in the state for years.

Now why are you killing BeFree's commemorative thread about Jan. 6, 2005, huh? The levers worked fine in that election, by the way. The vote switching occurred on paper in Ohio.
