I agree that the auditability requirement in HAVA no more bans lever machines than it bans paperless DREs. Tough luck for any naifs who might think that an auditability requirement would, well, require auditability. (The author of the provision apparently thought that it mandated a voter-verifiable paper trail, but he needed to think harder.)

NYVV supports voter verification. The truth is, I like voting on lever machines, but I have no way of knowing whether my votes are counted. Lever voting isn't voter-verifiable. So, NYVV has a strong point here. Kinda silly to deflect it by huffing that "NYVV believes it should be left up to NYVV."

That doesn't mean we should rush to buy lots of flawed scanners instead. Good people can disagree about what it means.

Are you implying that NYVV isn't "an election integrity organization" because it supports voter verification? That would be an interesting move.
