13. is that the choice?
Is New York even considering DREs? Yeah, I guess levers beat DREs in a transparency competition, but if someone has wedged a pencil lead in one of the gears, I don't see how I will ever know.

It's pretty disconcerting to verge on siding with kster in an ER debate. It's also pretty disconcerting to see people trumpeting how transparent levers are. An astonishing achievement of American technological genius, fine, but the epitome of transparency? Meh. It's especially weird when some of the same people who trumpet the exit poll evidence (not you, of course) call to keep the levers, since in 2004 New York had one of the biggest exit poll discrepancies in the country.
