73. Nice work.
Is it correct to assume that the links to election data represents elections that weren't close enough to warrant newspaper reporting of the perceived anomalies?

Are the undervotes something that wouldn't happen in a Op Scan election...particularly the down ticket races?

Meanwhile, the "Geneva" story says that the complaint was a result of the response to the problematic machine. Like emergency ballots weren't offered.

The Hockley Delgado race...and possibly the "Victor" race were really close. In the former, the difference was 67 votes...1/10th of 1 percent. Do you think 1/10th of 1 percent of paper ballots are ambiguously marked?

Could much of this have to do with deferred maintenance?

Is it likely that a similar, down ticket, problems in an Op Scan system would be caught by an audit?

Do these examples, in your mind, suggest the voters would be safer with an optical scan system?
